Let's Finish Strong!  The annual PPIE Giving Fund campaign concludes with the Pleasanton Run for Education on Sunday, April 12.  Help us finish strong by making a donation to PPIE next week!

Look for our wonderful PPIE volunteers at the FINISH LINE in front of participating schools during morning drop off on Wednesday, March 25, where you can drop a donation or, of course, you can donate online.


PPIE fully supports the mission of ensuring QUALITY education across all sites for all students. 

PPIE Run News - 20% more runners this year!
Now 3 Spirit Awards up for grabs!
Run Participation
We now have 20% more runners this year than last year at this point! Awesome! We're making great progress on our goal of raising at least $100,000 to contribute to the critical educational programs PPIE supports. But we still need YOU! Sign up at

To encourage a little more competition, we decided to break the Spirit Award into 3 Categories! This way the schools are more closely tied to their peer group: Elementary, Middle, and High Schools.


And, since the high schools provide a significant amount of volunteers to our event, the High School Spirit Award will include both running participants as well as volunteers. We could not do this race without our high school volunteers!
