Saints Shenanigans Sister Mary Jo Fun Run and 5K

The Inaugural Saints Shenanigans Sister Mary Jo Fun Run and 5K was held over the weekend in downtown Biloxi.

It was in honor of former Nativity BVM Principal Sister Mary Jo Mike who passed away in January to cancer. All the proceeds from the event went to the school to help with supplies and upgrading technology.

Event Organizer Jenny Tylerbaker says words can’t express how much Sister Mary Jo meant to everyone. “We have named this race in her honor just because she loved us and our students and our children and we just loved her so much.”

Student Jayden Ware said, “She was our principal for like 21 years. She comforted all of us when we came to Nativity and she helped me when I was getting bullied.”

The fun run and 5K had so much support that registration sold out. The school plans to have the run again next year.
