Soles for Catholic Education Walk
Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Mount Mary University
100% of cash and check donations raised by St. Thomas Aquinas Academy remained at our school to help reduce the cost of tuition, support tuition assistance, and ensure more children have access to a quality Catholic education.
Come Out and Walk!
Participating in the event is super fun! The 2-mile walk will start in the northwest circle driveway on Mount Mary University's campus. Walkers will proceed along the Menomonee River Parkway for 1-mile and return to Mount Mary via Menomonee River Parkway.

Four Great Reasons to Support the Walk
1. 100% of the money raised for STAA remains at STAA!
2. Leadership and Community: Catholic schools produce leaders well-equipped to take their place in society and be productive members of the work force. Our schools stress service, leadership, values, and ethical decision-making. Studies show that Catholic school students are more reliable employees, more civically-engaged, and more committed to community service.
3. Safer Communities: Studies show that when Catholic schools close, neighborhoods and communities decline and crime and social isolation increase.
4. Top Notch Education: Catholic schools have a 99% graduation rate! 94% of Catholic school graduates pursue higher education.
