The Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation's seventh annual Run for Education last month set an event fundraising record with $113,000 net.

Some 3,000 people (including Oakland A's mascot Stomper) attended the Run for Education on April 14, which featured 5K, 10K, 15K and Kids' Challenge events starting at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.

The funds will support librarians, reading and math intervention specialists, support counselors and more at Pleasanton Unified School District campuses.
