This family-friendly fundraiser is fast, flat run/walk – great for training, achieving a PR, or just having fun with your local community members all in support of your local elementary schools. The race is also a Santa Barbara Athletic Association Grand Prix race. The money raised supports music and physical education programs in Goleta’s nine elementary schools. The four-mile course starts at the District Office (on Fairview Avenue), loops around scenic Lake Los Carneros, and returns for a fast downhill finish. Other highlights include a Kids’ Fun Run, children’s activities (including the Music Van and Art Innovators), and live music.
GEF would like to thank the following sponsors for their generosity: Venoco, FLIR, Union Bank, Montecito Bank & Trust, The Bank of Santa Barbara, Marborg, REC Solar, the California Retired Teachers Association and Santa Cruz Market.
The Goleta Education Foundation is local non-profit that was founded in 1989 by local educators, parents, and business leaders who were concerned about the decreasing funding allocated to science, technology, music/art and physical education.
