JOIN US for the first-ever United Way Suncoast Obstacle Course Race.
Participants will enjoy 18 fun and challenging obstacles including a 6-foot wall climb, high wall scale, low crawl and much more. As this is our first year, we expect between 200 and 400 participants. (Total distance for the race will be ~3 miles.)
Our goal is not only to create a fun and engaging event for our community, but use the race as a way to highlight the obstacles so many people in our community face and how United Way Suncoast is helping them to overcome.
Proceeds will be used to fund programs and services right here in the Sarasota 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 our first tuition-free Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) class. The class and certification earned will 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. Sign up to volunteer today!
