Saturday, April 25, Notre Dame officially blessed and dedicated its new athletic fields and facilities. The blessing was a touching start to the day as members from the women's chorale filled our hearts with music. Following the ceremony was the kick off of Notre Dame's annual Sunflower Run, which was held for the first time on Notre Dame's campus. More than 90 5-k runners, 50 2-k walkers, and even some four-legged friends participated and crossed the finish line on the new track.
After the race, family and friends enjoyed Philly food trucks, dancing, moon bouncing, face painting and much more as part of Family Fun Day. We are grateful to our many student and faculty volunteers who helped make this event a success.
