Since 1989, the FICPA Scholarship Foundation has hosted a 5K/10K race in South Florida. This year, we will celebrate the 31th annual race in March with an exciting run in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The FICPA Scholarship Foundation is excited to host the 2020 event.
The annual event has tremendous local support and has become a great experience for families and co-workers to get together for fun and exercise while contributing to a very worthwhile scholarship fund. It is important to continue this great support and we hope you join us again!
Proceeds from the event are awarded to deserving South Florida accounting students in memory of Lewis Davis, Miami-Dade County’s first African-American CPA, community leader, and co-founder of the Greater Miami-South Florida Chapter - National Association of Black Accountants, Inc.
Since its inception, the 1040K race committee has raised more than $250,000 in scholarship funds. At the 2019 race, the FICPA Scholarship Foundation presented three deserving South Florida students each with a $2,000 scholarship check.
Thanks to the support of our sponsors, the FICPA Scholarship Foundation will again be awarding $6,000 in scholarship monies at this year’s race.
