The St. Charles Football Team is celebrating 95 years of football tradition this fall with a special event at the end of April, the GAME DAY 5K.
While much has changed over the years, one thing remains the same ….the pride of wearing the Cardinal Football jersey! When you think of the GAME DAY 5K race, think of it as a spring pep rally to help raise funds for new jerseys.
The 5K race and 1 mile walk will start at St. Charles, wind through north Bexley and finish at St. Charles. It will be a family-friendly event and we encourage you to form teams for the race. You can join a team or create your own. The team with the most registered members will receive recognition at the race and bragging rights. All racers will receive a race t-shirt and medal. The top 3 men and women in each age group will also be recognized. The race will kick off April 30th at 6:00 p.m. with a staggered start. We will have a chip timing system and results at the finish line. COVID protocols will be in place for this IN-PERSON race, however, spectators will not be allowed at the start and finish lines.
To register online, we invite you to visit the team’s Homepage at https://stcharlesfb.com/
The team is also launching its Back the Brotherhood Club (BTB). To become a member, simply select a particular jersey number to sponsor. It could be the number you or a loved one wore while at St Charles, your ‘lucky number’, the year of your graduation, or just a random number of your choice. For each $300 BTB sponsorship you will receive a t-shirt featuring the number you selected, recognition on a banner displayed at all 2021 home football games as well as a ticket for our first home football game this fall. Jersey numbers will be reserved when payment is received on a first come, first served basis. All donations are tax deductible.
