For the 15th time, LVs are ready to run to raise funds for Lasallian Volunteers. LVs Run 2020 will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s race will be virtual.
All proceeds generated from LVs Run directly benefit Lasallian Volunteers. This year, 30 Lasallian Volunteers are serving around the country helping to continue the Lasallian mission. Lasallian Volunteers are dedicated, well-trained young people serving in economically challenged schools and agencies around the nation. Serving in the mission and spirit of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, Lasallian Volunteers are reinforcing the idea that, through education, we can break the cycle of poverty.
Your support makes their service possible, so be part of this fast-paced fundraiser by donating or sponsoring!
The LVs Run goal is to raise $45,000, and your generous contribution can help us make this goal a reality.
About LVs Run
In 2006 when LV Adriana Rodriguez decided to run the NYC Marathon she also thought she’d see if she could raise money for Lasallian Volunteers in the process. A number of current LVs, Staff and her community members found spots along the race sidelines and cheered her on! In many ways, that was year one. Under the guidance of then coordinator of recruitment, Seth Whetzel, plans started coming together for LVs and the Chicago Marathon. In 2007, the Lasallian Volunteers organized the first of yearly fundraisers, as LVs Run exists today, around a specific road race to help the fundraising efforts of the program. Since running in Chicago in 2008, over $715,000 has been raised for the Lasallian Volunteers. The races provide the volunteers a place to share their story with friends and family inviting them to participate in the Lasallian Volunteers movement.
