Run for a Cause 2023

The time has come for our students to Run for a Cause! Last year together we raised $25,000 for the American Cancer Society and an additional ~$15,000 for Wesley's service learning program through the implementation of our amazing, new composting system.

Once again we'll come together as a community to learn, support, and run... The Wesley Way!

From January 11th through January 31st Wesley students will be fundraising for an important cause that affects many in our community, Type 1 Diabetes. Half of all proceeds raised will directly support JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, with the remaining funds supporting Wesley's service learning initiatives. Check out this important FAQ Sheet which includes information on our goals and overall Run for a Cause fundraising initiative.
