I am the principal of Rosa Parks elementary school and I am running this half marathon for the kids!! Half of what I raise will go directly to supporting valuable programs at my school, the other half will go to support programs through out Berkeley Public Schools. The Berkeley Public Schools fund helped to support valuable before and after school reading programs at my school last year that helped give kids the extra boost they needed to be successful in school. Please help us in our goal to make all kids successful!

The Berkeley Public Schools Fund invests directly in teachers' ideas and creativity with classroom grants, summer fellowships and volunteer support in the classroom. Since 1983, we have directed over $12 million and 750,000 hours of volunteer time into Berkeley schools.
