Dear MOSAIC Families,

Happy Monday and welcome to a new week. A big thank you to everyone who ran in our virtual MOSAIC Mile. It was great seeing the posted videos and photos of those who participated in the Mile. Your efforts and donations helped raise over $3,800 dollars. Thank you to our participants and to all the volunteers who helped organize the event!
