To raise money for Upper Merion Area Educational Foundation. UMAEF is committed to the continuing advancement of public education in the Upper Merion Area School District, by providing funds for educational programs and activities through engagement and collaboration with parents, school staff, businesses, and community members, so that every child is given the opportunity to thrive in a rigorous, engaging, and dynamic environment. We will achieve our mission by generating independent funding and developing community partnerships to recognize and encourage student and staff innovation and excellence. All proceeds from our Viking 5K & Family Fun Run/Walk go directly to fund the various projects that the Foundation awards each year. UMAEF welcomes athletes of all abilities to participate.
