One Day - Multiple Events - One Xavier Community
All are Welcome!

We have exciting news—the annual Fun Run/Dog Walk/Bike Ride (the Tour de Francis is newly moved to this date) on Saturday morning of Homecoming weekend (10/10) is still happening! This is something the whole family can do! We’ve made some changes, taken precautions, received approval from Appleton’s Public Health Department, and are planning for a great morning! 

Click here for our “What Moves You” event webpage for more details and to register to join us (virtually or in-person!) for this fabulous morning of fun, friendship, and fitness. Note: we had planned for a fun social time after with Food Trucks and socially distant, outdoor fun, but those plans will now be for next year.
Do you need a good or service? 
Check the Xavier Business Directory first!
This week’s section highlight: Health and Medical Services
Our Xavier Alumni and Family community is blessed to have a variety of businesses that support and strengthen Xavier Catholic Schools, and the Fox Valley. To help promote and acknowledge this group, especially during these times, we have created the “Xavier Business Directory”.  If any Xavier supporter is looking for a good or service, we encourage you to check the Xavier Business Directory first to see if there is a Xavier connection with a business providing the product or service you desire. Click here to see the current Xavier Business Directory.

Section Highlight: Health and Medical Services Section
If you are in need of a healthcare provider or any health-related service, check out the Health and Medical Services section! There are 18 businesses with a Xavier connection ready and willing to serve you. 6 of these generous businesses sponsor Xavier events in at least one way. 

The Directory is open to any Xavier-affiliated alumni, current parents, parents of alumni, and employees. To be included, complete the form on the right-hand side of the directory page.
