Official Charity Sponsor – Berkeley Public Schools Fund

Since its inaugural year, the Berkeley Half Marathon has aligned with local non-profit organization, the Berkeley Public Schools Fund to support its grant and volunteer programs in Berkeley public schools. When you register to run, make a donation to the Schools Fund to support their mission: To champion an equitable public education for students, families, and our community.  School Fund programs work to promote a love of learning and socio-emotional well-being.  The funds raised by Berkeley Half Marathon runners help to support much-needed programs including peer affinity and support groups, education training, literacy, and hundreds of volunteers in our schools, all of which help to level the playing field for students in Berkeley Public Schools.
