Strides For Education is a great opportunity to engage the whole community in the support of at-risk and deserving children. It’s more than just a walk, its an investment in our country’s future.
Hollywood, Florida (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Phix, an all-natural energy drink company, has become one of the proud supporters of Take Stock in Children(TSIC) to help raise awareness and funds for Florida’s low-income and at-risk youths who deserve higher education.
“Florida has one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the country. Less than 5 out of 10 children will graduate from high school this year,” said Doug Brown, President of Phix, “Take Stock in Children is a sustainable and successful program that has helped numerous kids to graduate and pursue higher education. I feel proud and honored that Phix is able to be involved in this great cause to help our future generations, and this has always been an important part of Phix’s corporate culture.”
TSIC provides low-income children with volunteer mentors, case management and social services from middle to high school. If the students graduate the program, they are provided a college scholarship as well as transition services to improve their chances of success in college. Since 1995, TSIC has granted $109 million in college scholarships to over 16,000 at-risk children and managed to achieve a graduation rate as high as 92%.
On November 19, TSIC’s “Strides For Education” 5K Walk/Runs will take place across Florida to benefit local programs. Phix will also join this statewide effort with its Miami-Dade Chapter to help raise awareness and funds. “Strides For Education is a great opportunity to engage the whole community in the support of at-risk and deserving children. It’s more than just a walk, its an investment in our country’s future,” said Brown.
The event will be held at Miami Dade College-Kendall Campus at 7:30 am on Sat, Nov 19th, and open to all individuals, families, companies and local organizations, featuring family-friendly activities, giveaways, and much more. Registration is $35 per person and is discountable for students with the promo code “graduate”. All proceeds will go to benefit the Take Stock in Children fund. Phix will be on-site to hand out free samples. For more information, please call 305.237.3855 or visit give.takestockinchildren.org.
