The Stride


The LPS Foundation is sending out a huge THANK YOU to all of you who walked, ran, cheered, volunteered, virtually participated, slept in or even went to brunch in support of The Stride. Because of YOU, the event exceeded all of our expectations! 

You crossed the start line with enthusiasm, smiles, and cheers and eagerly carried the fundraising baton all the way across the finish line to help us raise valuable funds for much-needed programs that support academic learning and student well-being. 







In 2019 we endured a snow and ice storm with frigid temperatures.  Last year we had coronavirus, face masks, and social distancing.  This year we say, NO WORRIES because you can Stride YOUR way. That means in-person or virtually, whichever works best for you and your family! And guess what? The weather is going to be perfect for running/walking!
