St. Margaret Mary Alacoque School in St. Louis, Missouri has raised more than $2,600 to date via Schoola. With these funds they’ve purchased an automated children’s defibrillator, which was necessary for one child in need, but can potentially benefit many children. Beyond this, they have goals to promote the health and wellness of all their students. They’ve formed a walking club and are raising money for new playground equipment.

The walking club has about 100 students who are actively participating. It’s also a great way for parents to get involved and help supervise. Students get points and prizes (usually a “dress down pass,” which means they can ditch their uniform for a day). And when they’ve walked 25 miles, at the end of the year they are eligible to enter a drawing to win baseball tickets.

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque is a private Catholic school that serves children preschool through eighth grade (three years to 14 years). They have 441 students, and are located in the suburbs of St. Louis. If you’d like to support their fundraising goals, you can shop their Schoola shop here.
