Shell/MEF Run for Education Supports Martinez Schools

Shell/MEF Run for Education Supports Martinez Schools

Join us for the 15th Annual Shell/MEF Run for Education on October 1. The walk/run includes a 5K and 10K course and the opportunity to have a great time while raising money for the Martinez Education Foundation (MEF) and Martinez schools. The walk/run is the major fundraiser for the MEF each year. All proceeds from entry fees, sponsorships, and the September 30 Martinez Family Fun Night at the Shell Clubhouse go to Martinez teachers in the form of grants that enhance their classroom teaching, particularly in the area of technology.

 

Ann Notarangelo, external relations manager for the Shell Martinez Refinery, says, “It’s rewarding to know that since 2003 the Run for Education has raised more than $650,000 for our teachers and students. We love the community spirit that surrounds this event, and we’re aiming to break the $100,000 dollar fundraising mark this year.”

The Run for Education committee is still accepting sponsorships and inviting more runners and walkers. All ages are welcome, and prizes are awarded for the overall winners as well as in various age groups. To sign up, go to the MEF website: http://martinezedfoundation.com/run-for-ed

 

The Run for Education is the signature community project of the Shell Martinez Refinery. The refinery provides financial and logistical support, staffing, and volunteers for the event. In addition to playing the lead role in underwriting the run, Shell will match the first $20,000 in registration and sponsorships.
