Columbia Academy’s Race for Education

April 29, 2022

Race for Education

On Friday, April 29th we will be participating in a Race for Education to raise money for new classroom computers and to continue to provide a quality education and affordable tuition. 

Students from preschool through eighth grade will walk around the playground during their designated playground times, and even our infants and toddlers will participate in their buggies! Each student can raise funds by asking sponsors to contribute a donation to Columbia Academy.

Our success relies on the number of sponsors and amounts they give. Think of relatives, friends, neighbors, business associates, coaches, and anyone else you know who would want to invest in your child’s education. 

You can post the link,, on social media and even text it to relatives and friends.

Student Prizes

  • Students who receive at least one donation from a sponsor will get a Crazy Hat Day Card.
  • Students who receive multiple donations from sponsors will get the following:
    3 donations: the above plus a Spirit Dress Day Card
    6 donations: the above plus a Backwards Dress Day Card
    9 donations: the above plus a Pajama Day Card
  • Each class which receives an average of three sponsor donations per student will be
    treated to a Dance Party.
  • For every five sponsor donations a student receives, the student’s name will be entered into
    a drawing for a Grand Prize of a $10.00 Target Gift Card. One gift card will be awarded at
    each school.
  • A $5.00 Rita’s Gift Card will be awarded to the student in each class who receives the
    highest dollar amount in donations.
  • A popsicle will be given to all of the students on Race Day.
  • If we reach our goal of $10,000 students will receive their choice of either a Stuffed Animal
    Card or a Homework Pass.

Please help us to meet or exceed our goal of $10,000 so we can continue to support and expand learning experiences for all our students. Let’s start the Race to get sponsors!
