We are very excited for our 2018 Angel Safari 5K & Kids’ Fun Run at the Louisville Zoo coming this October 20th! This is our primary fundraiser that benefits the entire school.
What is the Angel Safari?
Sponsored by Immaculata Classical Academy, the Angel Safari is an annual run and family event at the Zoo. Our set-up crew arrives at 6AM and the event must be complete by 11AM. It's a whirlwind and tons of fun! Last year we had 350 participants and raised over $75,000.
Why is the Angel Safari important for Immaculata?
Despite cutting costs wherever possible, tuition covers only about half of our operating cost. The Angel Safari is critical in helping us balance our budget and continue to offer high-quality affordable education to families.
KIDS’ FUN RUN
The Fun Run is a short loop around the Zoo path and open to all children (not just Immaculata students!) ages 12 and younger. Parents are welcome to accompany their children. Youth who wish to register in the 5K race instead of the Kids’ Run are welcome to do so. THE FUN RUN EVENT WILL NOT BE TIMED. Prizes will be awarded for first place male and female winning runners as well as those who raise the most money from sponsors.
We’d like as many runners as possible! Registration is available online through the Immaculata website. (Look for the red button on the home page!) Online registering requires a $3 fee assessed by the website. Adults may register as a timed runner for $35 or may purchase a general attendance ticket to support and cheer on the runners for $15. All registered kid or adult runners and general ticket holders also receive free admission to the zoo for the entire day of the race. Children under the age of 3 are free for our event.
Registration is also available on the day of the event but day-of registers will not be guaranteed a t-shirt. Credit cards are not accepted.
