UMAEF Virtual Viking 5K 2021 – We did it!
The Upper Merion Area Educational Foundation would like to thank everyone who participated and/or donated to our Viking Virtual 5K & Family Fun Run. It was heart-warming and exhilarating to see so many of you completing the race and sharing with us your accomplishment!
Thanks to our sponsors, local businesses and all those who donated to our Foundation. The list is available on the race website. Despite the challenges of a virtual race, we raised over $8,000! The money will go directly to teacher-initiated projects benefiting students in all seven schools of the Upper Merion Area School District!
Finally, we want to congratulate the winner of the elementary school classroom competition: Ms. Kilian’s’ kindergarten class at Roberts! The entire class will get a cool Kona Ice party donated by Kona Ice KoP!
