Strides for Scholars is a 5K and Fun Run for anyone looking to work off those last holiday pounds. Sponsored by Thrivent Financial and the Bay Education Foundation, this event supports the Foundation's Take Stock in Children program, providing scholarships, mentors, and hope to local students.  Join us after the race for a complimentary awards brunch at the Nelson Building, where top runners in each category receive ribbons.  All Fun Run participants receive an award.
