ROSELLE, NJ – For the first time in more than a decade, Roselle Catholic will host a three-mile charity walk and wellness day on Friday, April 15 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. led by faculty, administration and volunteer students. The benefit walk will help raise awareness for the Roman Catholic high school and its commitment to the practice of wellness, while raising money for tuition aid for current and future Roselle Catholic students.
A Roselle Catholic alumni and his brother have generously offered to match two dollars for every dollar raised throughout the initiative. Through April 11, more than $50,000 has been raised ($150,000 with the matched donation) for the fundraiser. All of the money raised will go towards general student tuition assistance.
“This reinforces how strong of the dedication that there is to the Roselle Catholic community,” suggested Chris Clesca, Director of Admissions and Marketing and history teacher at Roselle Catholic, who will be participating in the walk. “From the faculty and administration to the alumni and students, everyone has pulled together towards the cause, which will benefit future generations. I couldn’t be more proud.”
Sponsorship packages for this benefit walk are available and can be coordinated through Roselle Catholic Development Director Dave Boff at 908-656-3894 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those who are interested in making a donation to the cause can pledge on this website.
