About This Activity

This year, Little Flower School will be hosting the first annual “LFS Patriot Day 5K” on September 10, 2016. We are very excited about this community event and LFS fundraiser! At Little Flower School, our commitment to the growth of the whole child is achieved through a focus on our core values: faith, knowledge, and service. This event will complement our environment that encourages service to each other, our school, and especially to our community.

Each year, this event will be held on the Saturday preceding Patriot Day, September 11, to honor our local “patriots” to include military, firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical technicians. Participants in the 5K can run or walk, and children 10 & under are invited to participate in our 1-mile Kids’ Run on the school grounds. 

In addition to the 5K and Kids’ Run, participants are invited to nominate their “Patriot of the Year,” who will be selected by our Student Council and recognized at the opening ceremony. Ten percent of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the service organization of the selected Patriot of the Year’s choice. Additional details and nomination forms are located on the LFS Patriot's Day website identified in the "Organizer" info box.
