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 as well as Track and JROTC scholarships in Sarasota, Florida.
The leftover 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 athletes through an essay submission process. There are 2 $1,000 scholarships in perpetuity to seniors thru the Sarasota Community Foundation.
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.
