Come out for a fun family morning and help support Holy Family Academy.
Michael Pennefather, a student of Holy Family Academy, died at the age of 12 after battling multiple illnesses and disabilities. He colored the world around him with his infectious smile, optimism and joy for life. This fun and family-friendly event is an opportunity to remember a remarkable young man, encourage fitness at beautiful Signal Hill Park in Manassas, and raise necessary funds for on-going projects at Holy Family Academy and the St. Padre Pio Chapel, located at the school Michael loved.
