In honor of the life of Andrew Monroe, the Annual Andrew Monroe Memorial Scholarship 5K Walk/Run was established for the benefit of senior soccer players at Riverview High School in Sarasota, Florida. Senior, girls and boys, soccer players have the opportunity to receive scholarships through an essay process.
The proceeds from the event also goes toward the Andrew Monroe Memorial Scholarship Fund through the Sarasota Community Foundation. The scholarship is open for all county soccer players through an essay submission process in 2019.
Through Andrew's love of soccer, we encourage students to excel in both athletics and academics by offering scholarship opportunities.
Several of our participants are students from Riverview High School and other surrounding schools.
The first event took place on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at the beautiful Siesta Beach in Sarasota, FL. We welcomed over 300 participants our first year with ages ranging from grade school to senior citizens.
From sponsors, donors, and volunteers the 1st Annual event was a tremendous success and funds raised exceeded our expectations.
