Back by popular demand, St. John Nepomuk will host the 2nd Annual Falcon 5K & Fun Run on Saturday, September 29, 2018. My name is Kari Dannemiller. I served as the Inaugural Falcon 5K & Fun Run chairperson in 2017 and this year I am co-chair along with Bill McManus. We have begun the initial steps to plan for this family-friendly event. With the support of our valued Sponsors in 2017, we reached our goal! We were able to install 2 NEW Elkay water fountains with filters and water bottle filling stations on St. John’s campus.
About the 2nd Annual Falcon 5K & Fun Run
We are excited to announce that the 2nd Annual Falcon 5K & Fun Run will fund products that will directly have a positive impact throughout the day with students that attend St. John Nepomuk. With the funds we raise, we will purchase a combination of Desk Bicycles and Flexible Seating – using Stand-Up Desks, Yoga Balls, Wobble Stools, and the like, for each classroom. We believe by providing healthy classroom environments, we are demonstrating to our students, unique methods to incorporate fitness in everyday life. Research shows that after 20 minutes of physical activity, students tested better in reading and math, and were more likely to read above their grade level (activelivingresearch.org). By investing in all of our classrooms, we hope to encourage/enhance the ability to focus and increase fitness levels while learning.
About Our Purpose
At St. John’s, we continue to strive to create opportunities that partner this academic excellence with a firm foundation and commitment to health and wellness for our students. We firmly believe we have an important duty to nurture the student in Mind, Body, and Spirit.
