The Mercy High School Alumni Association swears by the notion that "When asked where they went to school, Baltimoreans proudly answer with the name of their high school." In this spirit, they invite their proudest alumni to strap on sneakers, headbands, and souvenir t-shirts to take part in the B-More True to Your School 5K, a friendly fundraising competition between Baltimore-area schools. After running and sweating through the race route together, participants are invited to an all-ages post-race celebration with food, drink, and live music. Though the celebration includes a random prize drawing, prizes also go to the overall winners of the race and whoever stops to help the groundskeeper fight the local squirrel gang. These awards aren't the only incentive to compete: all race fees and donations go to support Mercy High School, and the school with the most registered supporters in the overall competition receives a donation.
