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