Scholarship Fund


One of our most celebrated functions as a running group is to raise money to help send graduating seniors from Half Moon Bay High School to college. We usually award the money to two recipients, one boy and one girl, who are on the cross-country team. The award is presented in May of each year.

If you're interested in contributing to this purpose, or would like to know more about our fund, please email at
