Officials of the Signal Mountain Pie Run 10K road race presented a check for $2,000 to the Mountain Education Fund (MEF) this week benefiting area schools.

Accepting the check on behalf of MEF was Mike Taylor.

Sponsors of the race and presenting the check were Doug Torrance, DDS, Bill Minehan, Adtech Ceramics, and Lee Davis, of Davis & Hoss.

The Signal Mountain Road Race is one of the oldest races in Chattanooga, more than 30 years running. The Chattanooga Track Club hosts the race with the finical support of these sponsors.

Race Director Lee Davis said, "I am proud to say that 100 percent of the race proceeds goes directly to the Mountain Education Fund and in our small way we are supporting activities and services at area schools. Doug, Bill and I have decided to partner with the Mountain Education Fund as our charity of choice for all future races while we are the supporting sponsors. We believe in their mission."
