Funds raised through participation in the Geist Half Marathon races will support the Mt. Vernon Education Foundation grants, programs, and initiatives for Mt. Vernon students and staff.
The Mt. Vernon Education Foundation (MVEF) understands that to create healthy and engaging learning environments, we need to give our students the tools that they need to be successful. The MVEF and MVCSC collaborative team approach is to work for systemic, strategic and coordinated efforts in supporting the development of the whole child, which includes social, mental, nutritional, physical and safety wellness.
As a partner with the Geist Half Marathon School program, it will afford us the opportunity to develop mental health and wellness initiatives which will benefit our growing school population of over 4,100 students through the Geist Half Marathon school grant program. The MVEF partnership with Geist Half Marathon will provide our organization a vital tool in raising dollars that will offset the costs of our physical and mental wellness programs at MVCSC.
