12th Annual Big Bear Run

The 12th Annual Menlo-Atherton Big Bear Run took place on Sunday, May 7, 2017.  The Big Bear Run is the Athletic Boosters' primary fundraiser ever year, and we were excited to see more than 700 students and athletes, families, teachers and staff participate in the run. Click here to see the race results.

Also, Boosters would like to make a huge shout out to everyone who volunteered, and to all our sponsors who are the ones that make the Big Bear Run possible.

It takes over $150,000 each year for the M-A Athletic Boosters to fund the basic needs of our teams which support over 900 committed student-athletes. This funding helps insure that our diverse high school student body benefits from an excellent education in and out of the classroom. In 2014, the Big Bear Run raised enough money to purchase $15,000 in uniforms, $25,000 in basic equipment and training supplies, and $70,000 in coaching stipends, and more.
Without this base line support, the continuity of these enriching athletic programs would be compromised as the financial need of our programs falls into the gap between basic state funding and the reality of our athletes’ promise.
