The “Together We Stand 5K: Run for Safe Schools” event is coming up on Saturday, December 12 at Starkey Park! This is a wonderful event put on by Pasco County Schools with a focus on creating safer, more inclusive schools and communities by preventing all forms of violence, including bullying. The proceeds from the run will be used to provide scholarships for Pasco County high school students to attend the Summer Youth Leadership Institute at Sunrise. Any remaining funds raised would be used to help fund additional school and district-based student leadership activities, such as the Together We Stand Summit, for Pasco County students.
You can also register as an individual or as a team. Pasco County Schools employees can register at a discounted rate of $20 and students can register for $15. Students and staff from individual schools can form teams together.
