All proceeds from this event support our important mission to serve students and families from Minneapolis and surrounding communities who seek a high-quality, values-based, academic preparation for life.

The Founder’s Day 5K is a community-wide event that brings together all members of the DeLaSalle community for fellowship. The walk/race starts and finishes on DeLaSalle’s own Football Field. The event is a fun and healthy way to connect and celebrate the good work of our teachers, staff and students, in honoring the legacy of our founder St. John Baptist de la Salle.  We will again feature Beat the Principal!  As you may know, Principal Jim Benson is a seasoned runner. Runners 18 years and under are encouraged to participate in our Beat the Principal event! Runners who beat Principal Benson’s clocked time in the 5K loop will get free ice cream.
