The Hope Scholarship

This year The Great Miami Riverway Half Marathon is supporting The Hope Scholarship. Over the past two years, they have presented a totaling of thirteen local high school seniors a Character Scholarship totally $14,000, and honored them at their graduations in front of their peers, parents, and school faculty as well as showing up at individual houses to present them with the scholarship. Each scholarship was based on their personal character. It is such an amazing experience to give this kind of accolade. The Hope Scholarship believes character is the most important thing you can honor.  After all, what good is athleticism without character?  What good is beauty without character?  What good is wealth, prestige, or intelligence without character? Please consider giving to this excellent cause by donating!
