Down by the Bay 5k benefits the Mountain View Parent Nursery School (MVPNS),  non-profit parent cooperative preschool.

The 5k (and Tot Trot) were initially formed in 2014 as a fundraiser to move the Mountain View Parent Nursery School to a new location. With the help of the community, the school was able to move to its new location. The funds now go towards our annual expenses.

Please consider making a donation to Down by the Bay 5k. Your generosity will help us save on the costs of putting on this unique event, and the proceeds will help the school continue to serve all families regardless of economic backgrounds.

As thanks to our donors, your name will be listed on our Donors Wall. All donations are tax deductible. Please consider getting your donation matched through corporate matching.

If you are not able to donate, you can still help us as a volunteer.

Down by the Bay 5k and Tot Trot is organized by MVPNS, a 501(c)(3) non-profit school. Tax ID: 23-7366707
