At the conclusion of the race (approximately 10:30 AM), we will host the Inaugural De La Salle Family Day in the the school yard. There will be food, music, activities and entertainment for the entire De La Salle community. There is no charge for this event and we encourage all to attend.
All students who register for the road race will be treated to a FREE movie during a school day at the historic Prytania Theater and coffee and beignets.
The grade level with the highest percentage of participation will also earn a class-wide sno-ball party.
We thank you for your involvement and look forward to seeing each of you on Saturday April 6th.
