Description

Fitness, Fun & Friends! 
Join your family and friends on a scenic cruise through Granite Bay. The Eureka Schools Foundation’s Fund Run promotes a healthy, active lifestyle while providing a fun, community-centered opportunity to raise funds to support students, teachers, and programs of the Eureka Union School District. You can register for a 5K, 1M, or Kids’ Run (100 yard dash). Popular with local families and fitness enthusiasts from across the region, the event attracts over 1,000 runners, walkers, and spectators. Stay after the race and hang out with your community, support the youngest runners as they sprint across the football field for the 100 yard dash, and attend the awards ceremony. Can't wait to see you there!

NEW FOR THIS YEAR: You can make an even bigger impact - when you register to participate each runner will automatically get their own individual fundraiser page. Share your page with friends and family and get sponsored to run. Simply complete your registration, scroll to the middle of the confirmation page, click on your fundraiser page(s) to customize and share. If every participant raised just $100 we would be able to increase our contribution  by 30% to the EUSD! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Send an email to loved ones and extended family members with the link to your fundraising page
  • Post the link to your fundraising page on social media
  • Share the link with neighbors
  • Share your family fundraising link with your co-workers

We are looking for 100% participation to help us reach our $10,000 goal.
