What is the St. Croix Catholic School Marathon Fundraiser?

  • The Marathon is the most important school fundraising event of the year, running October 2 - October 31, 2022.
  • All donations go directly to the school’s operating budget to support various essential programs.
  • A community-building event that helps raise awareness of Catholic education.
  • New this is the Walkathon: four weekly, family walks of any distance (kick-off walk included), to shine our light throughout the St. Croix Valley.


Fundraising Goals

$250: All students Preschool-8th Grade minimum


$750: Family of three or more minimum

Fundraising Efforts

  • All students are encouraged to reach out to relatives, friends, and neighbors.
  • Make phone calls, write letters, send videos, etc. 
  • Matching Funds Programs are offered for educational institutions by many companies. Please check with your employer about matching fund programs.



Each week of the marathon we encourage all students and their families to walk any distance together, in their spirit wear, to shine a light throughout the St. Croix Valley.
