Dear [ENTER NAME],

On Friday, November 13th, my school St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School will hold our 11th annual Race for Education. The funds raised will be used to purchase upgraded Interactive Boards for the classrooms. Each $4,000 raised will purchase one Interactive Board. Our goal is to raise $15,000 – this will purchase 3 Interactive Boards! There are three ways to sponsor me:

  • Donate online at aquinastars.org/race-for-education-2; OR
  • Text STARSRACE20 to 71777; OR
  • Mail a check payable to STARS to: Race for Education,  St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School, 13750 Mary’s Way, Woodbridge, VA  22191

Along with raising funds, we are also working hard to meet our goal of 1,000 people pledging to pray one decade of the rosary (Our Father, ten Hail Marys, and one Glory Be) daily from now until Christmas, asking God to grant Wisdom, Peace, Health, and Protection to everyone in the Aquinas community. Pledge to join us in prayer by emailing RosaryCampaign@aquinastars.org.

If we raise $15,000 and 1,000 pledges of prayer for the Daily Decade Rosary Campaign, we will celebrate with a day off school on December 8!

Thank you supporting my school both financially and through prayer!

Sincerely,

[ENTER STUDENT AND/OR FAMILY NAME]
