11th Annual Run for Hope

5K Run, 2.5 Mile Walk & 1K Kids Fun Run 

Thank you to everyone who made this year’s event such a great success! Please enjoy the photo gallery from the 11th Annual Run for Hope and can’t wait to see you again next year.

The James & Maxine Pouravelis Scholarship Fund Race/Run was established in December 2006 in memory of two devoted and vibrant members of the Catherine McAuley community. Jim and Maxine lived each day with an unending and unwavering spirit of hope and optimism. Although they embodied this hope through their generous contributions to countless communities, they had a special affection for the McAuley community that nurtured their two daughters (Claudia ’99 and Justine ’02) and provided them with a superb educational foundation.

In life, Jim and Maxine cheered loudly, danced often and loved immensely. They passed away within two months of each other in the summer of 2006. Even in sickness, with a powerful faith and steadfast love of family and friends, they remained sure and firm in their hope. The James and Maxine Pouravelis Memorial Scholarship will provide financial assistance to young women seeking an education at MGA, an education Jim and Maxine saw as essential to the holistic development of young women. Through the hope that is nurtured by a Mercy values-based education, this scholarship will continue to keep their hope in new beginnings alive.

To date, 36 deserving students have been awarded over $130,000 in support of their education.
