COSTA MESA — The Costa Mesa Community Run is expected to bring in more than $10,000 for local schools for the fourth year running.
More than 850 people came out to the 4th annual run Saturday morning at Estancia High School's Jim Scott Stadium, said race director Dan Joyce, the city's public affairs manager.
"It was just a really feel-good event," he said.
With the preliminary numbers in, the event looks to be on track to raise between $10,000 and $15,000, Joyce said.
The event has raised more than $35,000 for Costa Mesa schools since its inception.
Event proceeds will be shared among the foundations for Costa Mesa and Estancia high schools and TeWinkle Intermediate School, as well as the Newport-Mesa Schools Foundation, which supports elementary and alternative schools, event chairwoman Karen Barloon has said.
The events participation went up 20% from the previous year and saw an increase in community sponsorship, Joyce said.
