With the support of 156 Edge community donors, we raised $86,239 during Move Mountains 2019!
We created Move Mountains as a day that brings together the power of generosity with excellence in academics and athletics to improve our school facilities and opportunities for Edge student-athletes. We set an ambitious goal to raise $100,000 through individual donations and matching contributions. Although we didn't quite reach our goal this year, your donations made an important impact.
Thank you to all of our donors for giving to Move Mountains on December 3. We understand how many deserving organizations ask for support at this time of year, and we are grateful for all of the support offered to the Edge School to benefit our young leaders.
A special thank you to our matching donors, the Unruh family, McDonald Luxury Homes, and the Charron family for contributing a total of $37,500. With their generosity, all gifts were matched, dollar-for-dollar.
With these donations, we'll be able to replace three old water fountains with new water bottle filling stations, add six Google ChromeBooks to classrooms, provide new character development opportunities, and increase the Edge School Foundation Opportunity Awards.
Our student-athletes brought their excitement, energy, and donations of their own throughout the day. Here are the final Mountain Team results:
1. Kilimanjaro: $15,202 (37 donations)
2. Logan: $12,933 (36 donations)
3. Everest: $12,188 (44 donations)
4. Makalu: $8,416 (31 donations)
Since 2017, over $278,000 has been raised through Move Mountains – funds that have been invested in a new Learning Commons, Student Awards, plus new equipment, and athlete assessment and movement velocity devices to advance training in the Duckett Performance Centre. Together, we are moving mountains for Edge student-athletes!
