Thanks for supporting Run Ed Run


On Oct. 9, more than 400 members of our community came out to support the Douglas County Education Foundation’s third annual Run Ed Run. All the money that was earned from this event will go directly back to the teachers and students of our community.

The mission of the Ed Foundation is to enrich and elevate the educational experience of Douglas County students by providing curriculum enhancement grants to educators and to recognize the extraordinary work of our Teachers of the Year. Each year teachers, administrators and counselors can fill out grant requests for funds that will better their students and school. Here are a few examples of what your money goes towards: A pottery wheel at Douglas High School, a sound system for Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School, and Rigby Readers for Jacks Valley Elementary. For more information about the grants that we have awarded and to make a donation, please visit our website,

Douglas High School and the Ed Foundation continue to work closely to create T-shirts for the run as well as the medals that were awarded. We would like to thank all the sponsors that made this event possible. Without their generous support this event would not have been as successful as it was. Our three guest judges, Commissioner Lee Bonner, State Sen. James Settelmeyer, and Judge Thomas Perkins were fantastic; thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to support the Ed Foundation. We want to thank all the schools that came out to support Run Ed Run; they all showed tremendous spirit. We hope to see all of you again next year for Run Ed Run.
