Pinckney, Mich., April 12, 2019—Saint Mary School families will hop on down the bunny trail this Saturday for the 3rd Annual Family Fun Bunny Run on Lakeland Trail. The two-mile fun run/walk will raise money for school wellness initiatives as part of Project Healthy Schools. Runners from preschool age to great grandmothers participate.

“St. Mary families look forward to the Bunny Run because so many join from little ones in strollers, to students, parents, grandparents and even great grandmas who walk the trail while the crowd cheers them on,” said Veronica Kinsey, St. Mary principal. “Many of our St. Mary families are multi-generational so the Bunny Run is a great way to bring everyone together to celebrate Easter and spring.”

This year the Wildcat cross country team will run with extra pride after a successful season that netted eight medals at the Coaching Legends Classic.

Bunny runners will also use refillable water bottles to help maintain the school’s Evergreen status as a State of Michigan Certified Green School.

“My favorite memories from the Bunny Run are of the kids cheering each other on, said parent Laura Elgas of Dexter. “The kids really support each other. They cheer for each and every runner, the older kids circle back to help the younger students finish the run. It’s a special tradition for our St. Mary family.”


St. Mary School partners with parents providing a Catholic school rooted in the gospel teachings of Jesus Christ, modeled by Mary our mother, encouraging a virtuous life following the Catholic faith and pursuing academic excellence.

St. Mary is a State of Michigan Certified Green School, is fully accredited by the Michigan Nonpublic Accrediting Association (MANS), and is a member of the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA)
