IOWA CITY — Regina Catholic Education Center of Iowa City participated in the 41st annual Run for the Schools in October and received $4,314.50 from the Iowa City Road Race Foundation. In total, Regina raised and received $10,800 through additional special appeal efforts for the program. The Run for the Schools is a city wide project to raise awareness for fitness and health and raises funds for the Iowa City public schools and Regina. Run for the Schools program collects money through registration fees, donations, and volunteer participation, which in turn goes directly to support the Iowa City Community School District Foundation and Regina Catholic Education Center.
Regina Catholic Education Center uses the additional funding to help cover annual operating expenses and to help pay for technology, such as iPads and enhancing the schools Wi-Fi capabilities.
“This is a great program that builds awareness for our youth to be active and fit and to also bring all of the Iowa City schools together for a great cause,” said Alan Opheim, Regina Director of Finance.
