After many years as a community and fundraising event, the Big Bear Run appears to have 'run it's course' so-to-speak. Our student-athletes, staff and families have many commitments, and it appears this was reflected in lower participation levels and revenue at the Big Bear Run. We may explore opportunities for other events to engage and financially support our athletic community in the future. For 2019 we are focusing on Sponsorship. We have enriched our M-A Boosters Sponsorship opportunities for families and for local businesses to support athletic programs at Menlo-Atherton (insert web link to sponsorship page-- or to MA Boosters donation). We are also forming the Menlo-Atherton Business Alliance (MABA) to invite our entire local business community to join together in supporting Menlo-Atherton's diverse and expanding athletic programs, and to welcome everyone to campus for athletic events. 

We greatly appreciate those who created and nurtured the Big Bear Run as well as all of those who participated, donated and volunteered with such enthusiasm. What a wonderful community!

Together we can do great things at M-A. GO BEARS!
