Event proceeds shall benefit the local Take Stock in Children Scholarship & Mentor Program facilitated by FUTURES Foundation. Take Stock in Children (TSIC) is a statewide scholarship mentoring program for low-income students. FUTURES’ TSIC scholars are selected in the eighth grade through an application and selection committee review process. TSIC scholars are paired with a mentor who meets with them for 30 minutes each week at school beginning in ninth grade. FUTURES’ TSIC scholars must maintain a weighted cumulative GPA of 3.0 and maintain good citizenship (no drug, alcohol, crime or gang activity). Upon achieving these goals and graduating high school, FUTURES Foundation awards these scholars with a Florida Prepaid tuition scholarship through the STARS Program.
The Take Stock in Children Strides for Education 5K is one of the funding sources for these scholarships. We hope you will support TSIC by participating in the event. All scholarship contributions currently are matched 100% with dollars from the Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program’s STARS Program which enhances each dollar donated locally.

5K USATF Certified Course # FL14102EBM
The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.
