About 50 students joined parents, nuns and Fr. Tom Graner in the 16th Annual Little Flower School Marathon on May 2 in Rugby.
The PTO-sponsored event is Little Flower School’s biggest fundraiser each year. Students send out letters to family and alumni to gather support for the school and the campaign is highlighted by a bike marathon up and down 30th Avenue NE between 2nd Street SE and US 2.
As of May 2, the school received about $10,000 in pledges and gifts, according to Graner. Students receive prizes based on how much money they raise.
A week after the marathon, the fun continued as students participated in the marathon awards on Friday. Some students got to lob water balloons at Graner and Principal Jorgen Knutson.
