What is the 'Marathon Day of Service'? 

An annual tradition at Carondelet, our "Marathon Day of Service" is one of the school's largest fundraisers and community builders.

This year, students will collect pledge donations for the Marathon Day of Service, held during the school day on Friday, October 6.

To celebrate our service, Carondelet faculty, families and friends are invited to join us back at the Lower Campus for a 
Family Fun Night (an evening of food, friends, and fun) from 5:30-8:00 PM on October 6.

Giving Matters! The Carondelet Marathon Day of Service is one of three major fundraisers that contribute towards the school's operating budget. The money raised helps us keep tuition affordable, maintain small class sizes, and offer the highest level of academic excellence in a faith-based, nurturing environment. 

Pledges – in exchange for pledge donations, students will gather for a school-organized Day of Service in October.  
Grandparents, parents, friends and neighbors are your students best “prospects” when seeking pledges. And don’t forget matching gift money from your employer.
