Physical Education grant
Grant award

In connection with the MAD Dash 5K, the Foundation awarded a $100 Physical Education Impact grant to Chris Roller, physical education teacher at Peculiar Elementary School. Participants in the MAD Dash 5K walk and run were able to indicate a Ray-Pec school to be entered for the chance to receive the grant. This was the first year for the grant award associated with the event.
