Homecoming 2021 to be Held Virtually on October 16th

Join us virtually for our Homecoming events on Saturday, October 16th, 2021. 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—young and old—come together to celebrate fond memories of our school. Sadly, due to the ongoing pandemic, we are still unable to host events on campus. Fear not! Olney will host a VIRTUAL homecoming event on Saturday, October 16, 2021. You will be able to participate through all of our social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). Continue reading to see what fun events we have planned!

We are developing a student-faculty Talent Show for a Saturday evening program to be recorded on video. We are also working on plans for an open Zoom chat for alumni to interact with one another. But most importantly, we have created ways for you to participate virtually 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 $20 registration fee becomes your donation.)
  2. If sponsoring a student or staff member, $35 covers a T-shirt for you and one for them. (If you choose not to receive a T-shirt, pay just $20.)
  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 yourself. Once completed, the form will redirect you to our Support page where you can pay securely with a credit card or PayPal account.
