Carmel Del Mar School held its annual jog-a-thon and raised a record-breaking $41,000. Students and staff members ran laps for about an hour on a 1/5 mile long course. The proceeds from the event will go towards the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation’s (DMSEF) $2 million goal to help fund credentialed science, music, art, technology, and physical education teachers. DMSEF is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that raises the necessary funds to provide Del Mar Union School District students with credentialed teachers who specialize in particular subjects. According to DMSEF, the contributions provide students with rich, robust education programs that would otherwise be unavailable to them. For more information about DMSEF visit or call 858-523-6007.
