BENEFICIARY:


At Roland Park Country School, we believe that young women who build each other up will thrive. There’s no hurdle too high for an RPCS girl because she has the collective support of her community lifting her toward her goals. While this spirit sets us apart from other schools, it’s the effect on our graduates that’s so remarkable: Roland Park Country School students develop a profound understanding of who they are and how to lead together to impact the world.

Roland Park Country School is an independent school for girls in Grades K-12, with a coed preschool (Little Reds) for children 6 weeks through 5 years. Proceeds from the Red Hot Run support The Fund for Roland Park Country School. The money raised will immediately be put to work enhancing programs, supporting faculty, and giving our students the tools they need to dream big.

For more information about the event, contact Events Manager, Ali Pitruzzella at pitruzzellaa@rpcs.org.
