Campus Crusade 2015 raises $14,000


  Members of Scecina's senior class take a walk around the block as part of Campus Crusade 2015. The seniors were the winning class with the highest rate of participation in meeting their individual goal of $50.

Scecina students found raising money for their school can be a lot of fun. This year’s Campus Crusade walkathon on May 11 now is in the history books, and it was a historic day.

Each year Scecina students and staff participate in the Campus Crusade walkathon to raise funds for important school missions. Here are some highlights of Campus Crusade 2015:

  1. We walked off campus for the first time in many years, making it a true “walkathon” and a better experience for our students. Students and staff walked a 3-mile route around the Little Flower neighborhood.
  2. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officers Mike Woida (father of Abby ’18) and Romeo Joson (father of Libby ’18) volunteered to helped mark the route and control traffic. Parents Debra Flynn, Barbara Frain, Judith Higgins and Amy Petrone volunteered at parent stations; and parents Julanne Sausser and Karen McInerney walked with the students.
  3. Our local firefighters at Station 20 on Emerson Avenue led one lap of our route and also helped fill our dunk tank. They also gave our students a nice arcing spray from one of their hoses during the walk. Thank you, Station 20!
  4. The senior class won a visit from the Wyliepalooza ice cream truck for being the top class in Campus Crusade participation with 56.9 percent of the class bringing in donations of $50 or more. Wyliepalooza operates a premium ice cream shop on East Washington Street in Irvington.
  5. The sophomores raised the most money of the four classes, $3,518. The sophomores won the chance to throw at the dunk tank target for the first ceremonial dunking of Principal John Hegarty
  6. The students raised $8,767 toward tuition assistance, to help their fellow students. They designated the remainder of the money for Student Life (clubs and athletics): $2,308.50; Academics: $1,158; Campus Ministry, $216.50; and Care of Campus (facilities): $330.
  7. Twenty-six students each raised $100 or more for Campus Crusade: Matthew Baggott; Julia Blastic; Maria Cleary; Jodie Everhart; Sarah Flick; Regina Forster; Trevor Grismore; Jayla Henderson; Shelbie Lawson; Jacob Lenne; Destiny Price; Jaira Z. Salgado Soriano; Ashley Shaker; Craig Shaker; Will Therber; Grace Wright; Christian Schreiber; Mitchell Donlan; Spencer Douglas; Sabrina Georges; Aaron Lee; Koy Pruitt; Hunter Reese; Michael Rosswurm; Christian Schreiber; and Kaylee Thompson. These 26 students together raised $2,800!
  8. The students who raised $100 or more were entered into a drawing for $250. The winner was senior Mitchell Donlan.
  9. We had a dunk tank! President Joe Therber, principal John Hegarty and teachers Pat Tucker, Jeff Getty, Brad Purcell and Elijah Sanders, and director of communications Beth Murphy all got dunked by our students.
  10. The students and the staff reached our goal by raising $14,000 to help our school. Thank you!
