The students at Lukas showed their school spirit, sported bright neon colors, dressed as their favorite superhero, donned red, white and blue and more to participate in our Laps for Lukas on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. This year brought new and exciting changes for our runners, while keeping many of the traditions that have made Laps for Lukas such a treasured event!
Laps for Lukas is our main all-school fundraiser. In the past, proceeds have been used for laptops, the Lukas marquee sign and many other purchases to benefit our school and children. Last year's money raised will be used to break ground on an educational area near the play area. This year, we will earmark the Laps for Lukas earnings towards continued efforts to prepare for a much safer and more child friendly outdoor area.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered or came out and cheered on the runners. It made for an amazing day. A special thanks to all of the Lukas teachers and staff who came out and ran with the students. It was great to see such a sense of community. And a HUGE thank you to Mrs. Sutter, our PE teacher. Without her hard work and dedication to our children's health and well being, this event could not be possible.
Lukas PTA and the 2017 Laps for Lukas Committee would like to welcome our primary event sponsors, 3W Races and Farmers Insurance - Richard Seymour Agency. We are excited for what these partnerships will bring to this year's event.
