Collegedale Academy is dedicated to enriching the lives of families and our community through Christian education. The Worthy Student Fund (WSF) is critical to our mission in furthering our ministry for every student, especially those that couldn’t otherwise afford a Christian education. We are planning to help over 160 students with financial aid this upcoming school year and this would not be possible without you.
In order to raise money for the WSF, we developed a 5K and Kids Fun Run, in honor of Sandy Erickson, our beloved teacher who taught first grade for over twenty years at A.W. Spalding Elementary School. Mrs. Erickson cared deeply for each of her students, working one-on-one to enhance their success. When diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), she kept her cheery attitude and sense of humor, exemplifying Christ’s selflessness.
With admiration, we decided to dedicate the 5K and Kids Fun Run to Mrs. Erickson.
Last year the Sandy Erickson Race for Christian Education 5K and Fun Run raised $70,558 that benefited the WSF. We had 61 sponsors and 529 registered student and community runners that participated in the event. Our overall goal this year is to raise $375,000 for WSF and this race is key in jump-starting our efforts.
