The Parents Association is pleased to announce a virtual 5K for everyone in our community! Merion girls—past, present, and future—and their families are invited to join us. Walk it, run it, row it, hike it, or bike it—any way you can complete a 5k! Complete your 5K anytime from Sunday, October 25 through Sunday, November 1, 2020. Form a team and come up with a theme to compete for fun prizes. Registration is now open and runs through October 29, and participants who register by noon on October 16 will receive a tee-shirt and a "finish line" for photo ops. (These will be available for pickup at school during the week of October 19. If you're not in the area, we can ship your packet to you.) Proceeds will benefit student programs as well as "The Mercy Girl Effect" project through the Sisters of Mercy International.
