Running with Ed Charity Fundraiser

2 min read

PROBAR is excited to have supported all of the runners participating in this milestone event!

Over $325,000 (and still counting) Raised for PCEF Programs Supporting Our Students, Educators, and Schools!

Almost 20 years ago PROBAR began making and selling delicious, on-the-go plant based food in Park City, UT.

PROBAR believes strongly in supporting our local community. 

As Utah has the lowest per pupil spending in the country PROBAR has been a longstanding proud supporter of the Park City Education Foundation to help fund our schools.

If you would like to support Running With Ed, they are still accepting donations. Their proceeds go DIRECTLY to the public school classrooms, changing lives and opportunities for thousands of students.

Here is a recap from Park City Education Foundation:

"WHAT.A.DAY! We are on Cloud 9 here at the PCEF Office. If you were able to take part on race day or follow along on social media, you know why.
Picture perfect weather. Costumes, joyous smiles, huge hugs, memories made. Even a little running thrown in:)
Thanks to your support, we exceeded our wildest expectations for the day. We heard over and over again: IT'S SO GREAT TO BE BACK! Back with the start and awesome Finish Line celebration at the Fieldhouse. Back with the excellent exchanges in full party mode. Back to being one of Park City's favorite days of the year.
Thanks to you we were able to smash both our participant and our fundraising goals!
You know the cause is critical - supporting PCEF means supporting our students, educators and schools. If these past two years have shown us anything, it's that our educators and schools are essential for successful businesses, families, and communities.
One last thing. Save the date for May 20th, 2023 for next year's RWE. We've won Park City's Favorite Fundraiser eight years in a row - we plan to win it again this year and make it nine:)"
The PROBAR team was excited to be present once again, supplying runners with all of their favorite snacks. BOLT's and PEAK's during the event and some PROTEIN bars to help the finishers recover from their effort!

Q:
Park City is the wealthiest micropolitan area in the country – so why don’t its schools have the money they need? 

A:
Because Utah has the lowest per-pupil education funding in the entire nation.
PLUS, 96% of Park City’s state-collected education tax dollars leave town to even things up around the state. 

The good news:
PCEF supporters are changing that equation!

PCEF funds programs to ensure all Park City students (more than 20% are eligible for free-and-reduced lunch) have access to educational opportunities. Things like PCSD’s groundbreaking K-12 coding program; high-quality affordable preschool; and afterschool care that works for working parents.

And when you fundraise for PCEF’s Running with Ed, you can be eligible for uniquely Park City gifts, tickets, and swag – all donated by our incredible RWE sponsors!
