WHAT IS THE GRIFFIN RUN?
This is the inaugural year for HCA’s Griffin Run! We hope the entire HCA family can gather together for this fundraising event to enjoy the spring weather, get some exercise, and support HCA!
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GRIFFIN RUN?
HCA is blessed to provide Classical Christian education to 100 students at our Bainbridge Campus. On average, the tuition charged to each HCA student is about $475 less than the cost to educate the student. This event helps “fill the gap” between tuition charged and our actual costs. (Note: HCA is an independent school and does not accept subsidized funding from local, state or federal governments.)
WHERE AND WHEN IS THE EVENT?
The Griffin Run will take place at East Idlewood Park (9797 E Idlewood Dr, Twinsburg, OH 44087). We will kick off the event with check-in at the pavilion at 9 am on Saturday, May 9th. After check-in, participants can start their walk, jog, bike, etc. on the trail for 1,2, 3 miles or more. Once everyone is finished, we will celebrate together with a picnic back at the pavilion at 12 pm.
WHAT IF RUNNING AND COMPETING IS NOT MY THING?
Great! This is NOT a competition AND most people will likely not be running. Participants are welcome to walk, power walk, bike, jog, or push a stroller instead of running if preferred. Note: biking is permitted, but skateboarding is NOT.
IS THERE A GOAL FOR THE SCHOOL?
There is! We have a financial goal for the whole school and each family. We are hoping to raise $25,000. This means around $300 per family. With sponsors and your support, we are confident we can reach these goals!
OKAY, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
- Register your participation by completing the adjacent online participation form. We encourage the whole family to join in the fun! Registration must be completed no later than Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
- Help find sponsors by sharing the corporate sponsor brochure with potential individuals and businesses. See if you can find at least one sponsor to support our event!
- Students and families seek pledges for the event. Contact friends, family, and neighbors to get support and complete a pledge form for each pledger (this can be done through the online pledge form or turned in using the printable version). Pledges can be on a per mile basis or a flat amount. We will immediately begin accepting pledge forms (both online submissions and printed forms turned into the campus) along with any donations. We expect to have all pledge money in by May 22nd. Students and classes can win prizes based on how well they are doing along the way!
The Lord has continued to carry and bless HCA. Please offer praise and thanksgiving for all of the blessings He has provided. Please pray that He will move in the hearts of area businesses, family and friends. We pray we finish the year strong and in His will.
