BENEFITING: URBAN PRAIRIE
ORGANIZER: URBAN PRAIRIE
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2013
I haven't run a race since I finished the Chicago Marathon in 2001. I've been running, but nothing has inspired me to enter another race until now. Ian enters first grade this fall at Urban Prairie Waldorf School, a truly unique and wondrous place to begin his educational journey.
Parents and friends are running the Shamrock Shuffle on April 7 in Chicago to raise money to expand Urban Prairie. Founded in 2009, the school has outgrown its original space and is planning to move into a new facility that needs work! If you have never seen a Waldorf classroom, please look at the pictures to the left. They are magical places where stories come alive on the chalkboard and in the minds of our students. Art, music, movement, and nature are all critical components to Waldorf's rigorous math and reading curriculum. To create these unique classrooms, we need to raise additional funds for our school. You have received a link to this page because someone you know is a proud member of the Urban Prairie community and he or she is asking for your help. Please donate today!
