Registration is now open for the 6th annual St. LauRUNtius 5K!
Please join us for the 5th annual race benefiting St. Laurentius School, Philadelphia’s oldest Catholic school. If you haven’t participated in the race before, this is a good year to join a new neighborhood tradition — the only 5K located right in our neighborhood! All proceeds directly benefit St. Laurentius School.
This is a neighborhood run through the streets of Fishtown. We invite everyone for an afternoon of fun in the heart of our neighborhood. All proceeds directly benefit St. Laurentius School. If you’re not a runner, don’t worry! There is a one-mile fun walk so you can still participate.
The race and walk conclude at the annual block party. Come out and enjoy the food trucks, beer tent, fun activities for kids, and more!

St. Laurentius School is excited to share that we’ve been working to set some exciting goals to improve and upgrade our technology! Over the next 5 years, we will embark on a plan to outfit our classrooms with iPads, and completely upgrade our wireless infrastructure. Our goal is to educate faculty and students alike on new learning apps and software.
This year, we have been soliciting estimates for vendors and learning platforms, comparing rates and funding options, and working directly with the Technology Committee of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to formulate our school’s goals.
This is where you come in! As members of our St. Laurentius community, we need your help to raise the seed funds required to start our technology upgrades. Today, we have launched an online technology fundraiser through “GoFundMe!” You can find this fundraiser link on our website at www.stlaurentius.org, through our Facebook page (facebook.com/SaintLaurentius) or through the direct link: www.gofundme.com/st-laurentius-school-tech-fund
Our initial fundraising goal of $5,000 will help us obtain in-service app and digital curriculum training for our faculty, and help us assess the best places in our school to have charging stations, wifi hubs, and more. This is the first step towards making St. Laurentius a true technology-integrated school, and we can’t do it without your support!
