Ties and Tennis Shoes 5K


 The Foundation’s 2013 Ties and Tennis Shoes 5K Run/Walk, one mile fun run or kids’ dash drew approximately 1,300 participants which included 54 Pinellas school teams. Participants crossed the finish line on the field on Rays Vision.

The 5K course includes a memorable finish line on the turf at Tropicana field. Serious runners will appreciate the race bibs with chips ensuring an accurate race time. Your photo finish will be captured on Rays Vision. You can also run for the fun of it, stroll with family and friends, or show off your decorated tennis shoes. The 1 mile fun run/walk is perfect for younger kids and families! The kids dash will take place on the field, after the fun run is finished! (Pre–registered kids 9 years old and under can participate)

Encourage your family and friends to watch you cross the finish line on the field  and stay to watch the kids dash, enjoy entertainment and  go gift shopping in our Holiday village!  After the awards ceremony, head over to Snowfest at Straub Park, where the holiday fun continues!

Proceeds from the 5K support the Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program. With the support of people like you, over 3,500  Pinellas County children have earned a life changing scholarship. The Take Stock in Children Scholarship program is a mentoring and incentive program that is providing doorways to success for deserving low-income students of Pinellas County
