RUN FOR MORE
The St. Thomas More Run for MORE is a traditional school jog-a-thon... with a twist!
We raise money for the STM Arts & Enrichment Fund that pays for extra activities, events and special items for the students beyond the planned curriculum. And we share half of the money raised with a charitable partner that has been nominated by our students. This year’s charitable partner is the Youth Charity League. YCL plants seeds of compassion in children ages 8-18 by providing family-friendly volunteer opportunities with local non-profits.
Run for More funds will support Youth Charity League’s Book It Forward program. Two STM parents, Arlene Unverzagt and Liz Risch, developed the idea during the pandemic as a way to bring literature to underprivileged children. The project continues to serve kids in this really important way, purchasing books in Spanish, providing books to kids for summer reading, and assisting their partner, Meals 4 Kids, to deliver books along with meals to families in need.
