Over the past 16 years since the event began, the race has raised $815,000. To receive a share of that money, Martinez Unified School District teachers draft submit grant applications explaining what they would like to accomplish. Once approved by the Board, teachers use the grants for items such as laptops, science and art supplies, robotics equipment, books and tricycles. The 2019 Run for Education will break the $1 million mark.
