Thank You, Park City! Celebrating the Success of Running with Ed 2024

We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible community support that made this year’s Running with Ed such a resounding success. Held on May 18th, this beloved annual fundraiser brought together over 1,000 participants, all united in their dedication to supporting the Park City School District. A special thank you to Christine Grenney of Choose Park City Luxury Real Estate and Chair of Running with Ed, whose passionate support and sponsorship were pivotal in making this event a success.

This year marked the 15th anniversary of Running with Ed, and thanks to the generous contributions of our community and the enthusiastic participation of our runners, we surpassed our ambitious fundraising goal, with total donations hitting over $340,000. This achievement would not have been possible without you, Park City!

We also want to extend our deepest gratitude to Christine Grenney and Brendan Trieb of Choose Park City Luxury Real Estate. As proud sponsors and active participants in Running with Ed, Christine and Brendan exemplify what it means to give back to the community they love. Their passion for the Greater Park City area shines through not only in their professional endeavors but also in their unwavering commitment to local initiatives.

Christine, who has served as the Chair of Running with Ed for the last 6 years, was the highest individual fundraiser for 2024, raising an impressive $32,800. She shares, “I am humbled by your generous support of the 15th Anniversary of Running with Ed. It is no secret that I am passionate about our community, our children, and the Park City Education Foundation. I’m beyond grateful to share that with your help, the Park City Education Foundation surpassed their goal of $325,000 with total donations raising over $340,000. From these generous gifts to over 1,000 runners (316 kids), the 15th Running with Ed was simply a smashing success. Thank you for your support in funding programming at all seven Park City Schools.”

With over two decades as a Parkite, Christine’s deep connection to the community, combined with Brendan’s shared passion for the area, make them invaluable resources for clients looking to buy or sell property in this unique community. Their dedication to providing exceptional, personalized service sets them apart in the competitive real estate market.

Beyond their professional commitments, Christine and Brendan are passionate advocates for the well-being and growth of Park City and its residents. From supporting public education initiatives to contributing to local nonprofits, their genuine desire to give back has a lasting impact.

Brendan adds, “On the surface, I think Park City really just looks like any other ski town to most folks. The more you get to know it, you realize how much more depth to the community there is. It's just really multifaceted, and the more time you spend here, the more you experience the many different layers and perspectives.”

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this unforgettable day of fun, fitness, and fundraising. From whimsical costumes to spirited sideline supporters, the event was a celebration of community spirit and educational excellence. We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you.

As we reflect on this year’s success, we look forward to many more years of Running with Ed, continuing to make a difference in the lives of our students and enriching our community.
