Olney's Homecoming to be Held Virtually, October 17th

Join us virtually for our homecoming event on Saturday, October 17th. Sponsor an Olney Distance runner today!

What a wonderful autumn day! Every year, Olney Friends School has the honor to host our annual homecoming, where Olneyites—old and young—come together to celebrate our fond memories of our school. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, we are unable to host our homecoming on campus this year. Fear not! Olney Friends School will be hosting a VIRTUAL homecoming event on Saturday, October 17, 2020. You will be able to participate through all of our social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube). Continue reading to see what fun events we have planned!


Even though we are unable to welcome you to campus, we have a day full of fun activities lined up for you. We are currently confirming a guest speaker for a live-streamed evening program. We are recording a cooking video segment to highlight one of your favorite homecoming dishes. But most importantly, we have created ways for you to participate virtually with us in the annual Olney Distance Run!


  1. By sponsoring yourself, you can run or walk the 5K wherever you like, email us a report of your time, and receive the T-shirt. (If you choose not to receive a T-shirt, the entire $18 registration fee becomes your donation.)
  2. If sponsoring a student or staff member, $30 covers a T-shirt for you and one for them. (If you choose not to receive a T-shirt, pay just $18.)
  3. Why not do both? Sponsor as many runners as you want!


Fill out the online registration form (link below) to sponsor your favorite Olney student, teacher, or self. Once completed, the form redirects you to our Support page where you can pay securely with your credit card or PayPal account.
