The PAS 5K Committee is pleased to announce that 3 families have come together to pledge $5,000 to support the PAS Art program if it is matched by the Penn Alexander community!
The 5K Race for Art & Science is PAS’ largest fundraisers. It’s a great way to get some exercise, not to mention the highly coveted 5K school-appropriate T-shirt! Our fundraising goal for the race is $40,000. Any size donation will help us unlock the match.
All participants will be entered into a drawing for a dinner with Principal Farrell! There will be other fun prizes, too!
Penn Alexander offers one of the best K–8 public school experiences in Philadelphia. This is possible only because of your support. The School District of Philadelphia budget is not enough to cover basic upkeep of the school, or to provide many programs and activities we expect in a school experience. The PAS 5K specifically goes to support arts and sciences programming at the school; without these funds, our science offerings would be greatly diminished.
