Berkeley Half Marathon Individual School Teams - Ready to Go!
In its second year, the Berkeley Half Marathon has again named the Berkeley
<http://www.berkeleypublicschoolsfund.org/> Public Schools Fund as the
race's official local charity. Last year, the Schools Fund raised $30,000
with the help of runners at each school - $10,000 of which went to
The race is Sunday, November 9. This year there will be a 5k race in
addition to the Half Marathon, which will make it easy for families to run
together to support their school.
The Schools Fund has already set up individual school teams
on Crowdrise and there's a how-to
video for signing up. Also, joining an individual team qualifies runners for
a discount registration code.
Running for an individual school will direct 50% of your fundraising to your
school PTA and 50% to the Schools Fund. Last year, the Schools Fund directed
money raised through the Half Marathon to a districtwide grant assisting
curriculum transitions in 4th and 5th grade math at all elementary schools.
Let's try to double the funds raised for Berkeley schools this year!
