Events & Fundraisers



Be part of the action and join fellow Churchill students, alumni, parents and friends at our 2nd Biennial Run with Rankin! NEW THIS YEAR: Join us in person on Churchill’s Valentine Field for a 1-mile race on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, among students, faculty, alumni, family and friends! We’ll have food trucks on hand so bring the whole family and make a night of it!

Churchill Center & School has a long-standing tradition of having our students run a mile in Motor Skills class. Supported by our Motor Skills Supervisor Mr. Rankin for the last 38 years, this activity allows our students to focus their attention on running and working toward a goal, which is something that carries with them throughout their time at Churchill and beyond. Many of our alumni include running the mile as one of their favorite Churchill memories!

Choose either a 1-mile (in person or virtual) or 5K course (virtual only) this year. Run in honor of your favorite Churchill student, teacher or anyone else! Medals will be awarded to top runners in each age bracket.

This biennial tournament began in 2011 to honor the life of Edwin (Ted) L. Noel, a former parent and Board President of Churchill Center & School. Ted and his family and friends were very passionate about helping families in financial need be able to attend Churchill. Since the tournament’s inception, it has raised more that $404,000 for scholarship assistance to ensure no family is turned away from Churchill for their inability to pay.


A fantastic time was had by all on Friday, October 28th, 2019 at Churchill’s Annual Sip & Savor event benefitting our Scholarship Fund!
