One of the Academy's biggest all-school service activities is our annual participation in Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event.
Relay For Life is one way MPA students, families, faculty, and staff raise funds for cancer research (nearly $20,000 in the past two years) and celebrate, honor, and remember loved ones who have fought the disease. In addition to family fun, food and games, the titular relay features teams of walkers continuously lapping the track throughout the event.
The MPA community also contributes through donations small and large. Our students and faculty coordinate a host of fundraisers leading up to the day of the event, including pledges, bake sales, car washes, and selling commemorative luminaria bags.
