Contests & Promos

Earn, Burn and Learn.

Win $2,000 in fitness gear or programming for your school!

The Earn, Burn & Learn School Contest provides a platform for schools to challenge their students and greater school community to participate in physical activity and volunteerism, while competing against other schools to win money for your school! Continue reading to find out more and learn how to get involved.

Running improves physical well-being, reduces stress, helps build a stronger immune system, and prevents muscle and bone loss. It builds self-confidence and is something you can do alone or as a family unit and is essential for many sports. Perhaps the most important for us, running promotes a healthy, active lifestyle. The chance to win some money for our school is just icing on the cake!

Just ask the students at Monsignor Doyle:
