EAGLES ON FOOT
5K RUN & 1 MILE WALK
ABOUT EAGLES ON FOOT
Since 2008, the annual Eagles on Foot 5k run and 1 mile walk has benefited Basil Moreau School, St. Edward High School’s sister school in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Founded by Holy Cross in 1989, Basil Moreau School serves 650 low-income children in the neighborhood of Carrefour in Port-au-Prince. Eagles on Foot took on added significance in January 2010 when Basil Moreau School was heavily damaged in the earthquake that ravaged Haiti. The primary school building was severely damaged, and the secondary school building was completely destroyed. In the years since the quake the Congregation of Holy Cross has made a tremendous effort to restore and rebuild the school, remaining steadfast in their mission to provide quality education to the people of Port-au-Prince. Here at St. Ed’s, we will continue our commitment to Basil Moreau School, and we are grateful to you for your help.
