Race for Education Fundraiser


On Thursday, May 11, 2023, Greensburg Central Catholic Jr-Sr High School will be having a "Walk the Extra Mile" fundraiser -- a fun event to raise $25,000 to continue providing a quality education and affordable tuition.  We are also hoping to reach our "challenge goal" of $35,000 so that we provide even more enhancements to the educational program students are receiving at GCCHS.

Students will walk and/or jog around the school track as many times as possible during a designated period of time.  They will complete at least two miles.  Each student will raise funds by asking sponsors to contribute a donation to GCCHS.  Please consider sponsoring a student today.  All donations are tax deductible.  Thank you.


1. Type your student’s name in the box below and click “Search.” His or her full name will then appear alone or in a list, along with their grade.

2. Click on the “Donate Now” button beside your student’s name, and make your contribution.

3. Consider helping to spread the news about the "Walk the Extra Mile." Below your student’s name you will see the wording: SHARE THIS STUDENT URL, and next to that will be his/her specific webpage URL. Click on the social media icons or copy & email the link to their page.

You can give any amount, of course, and those who contribute $50.00 or more will have their name and their sponsored child’s name on a special sneaker to be displayed in the school’s main hallway as a way to encourage and rally our students.

We should also tell you that students, as well as their homeroom, can win prizes (e.g., Dress Down Days, Donut Breakfast Treats, Grand Prizes, Kona Ice Treats, and more) for the number of sponsors they recruit. Finally, contact your sponsored student to find out the time that he or she will be jogging/walking.

Thanks for investing in a child’s education. This is going to be a fun and rewarding event.

If you prefer to pay by check, make the check payable to "GCCHS." Add the student's name in the memo line and send to Greensburg Central Catholic Jr-Sr High School, 911 Armory Drive, Greensburg, PA 15601

If you prefer not to sponsor a specific student, please consider making a “general donation” to Greensburg Central Catholic Jr-Sr High School.
