This annual fundraiser has raised more than $283,000 for our School Technology Department since the inaugural kick-off in 2014, which has allowed St. Al’s to remain on the cutting edge of technology. All proceeds this year will be used to upgrade and enhance school wide technology at St. Alexander School.

All students from PreK through 8th grade will benefit from the new technology. Help us keep our Technology Department up to date!

Please sign up today to be part of the Raider Run so we can help the children of St. Al’s have access to the best technology and prepare for high school, college and beyond!

Register by APRIL 19 to guarantee your t-shirt size!
