Steps of Success 5K Scholarships Fund

Proceeds from the Steps of Success 5K fund $500 to $1000 scholarships for college students.  We understand the financial hardships many students face pursuing their educational dreams.  Our goal is to help eliminate the financial barriers that may prohibit a student from graduating.  

Students must complete the 5K run/walk AND enroll in the Pathway to Success program to be considered for a scholarship. 

Pathway to Success Program

The Pathway to Success Program fosters positive results in the personal, educational, leadership, spiritual and professional development of local college students.  Students are selected to participate in enrichment workshops and seminars facilitated by mentors, motivational speakers, career and industry professionals.  

The programs overall purpose is to aid in the successful graduation of each student.  In return, the college students provide FREE tutoring through volunteer service hours to inner city youth participating in after school programs.  They help inspire the next generation of youth to go to college and fulfill their personal and professional goals.
