JOIN US for our second annual United Way Obstacle Course Race.
Participants will enjoy more than a dozen challenging obstacles including a 6-foot wall climb, high wall scale, low crawl and much more. Total distance for the race is ~3 miles.
The race is not only a fun and engaging event for our community, but it’s also a metaphor for the obstacles so many people in our community face and how, with your help, United Way Suncoast is providing tools and support to help them achieve and overcome.
Proceeds will fund programs and services right here in the Sarasota/Manatee area to continue to fight for the education and financial stability of every person in our community. Programs like a new career training program at the United Way Suncoast Booker Middle School Resource Center where we have, in partnership with CareerEdge Funders Collaborative, successfully launched tuition-free Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) classes. The class and certification earned help motivate participants to increase their lifetime earning potential by building their job skills in careers desperately needed in our community.
Sound fun, but a little too challenging? Join the fun as a volunteer!
We’re looking for fun, energetic individuals to help make this race a success with a variety of opportunities available throughout the day. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
