UNCF Tampa Bay will host its annual Black History Month Walk for Education on Saturday, February 11, 2023, starting at 8 AM at Perry Harvey, Sr. Park; 1000 E Harrison St, Tampa, FL 33602.
Members of the community and friends of UNCF are invited to take part in helping Hillsborough County students get the education they deserve. This year’s Walk for Education kicks off Black History Month with a history-based path learning about historic leaders who have developed the historic district. The festival is a celebration of leaders who have paved a way for the development of education on our minority youth. The event will have vendors, entertainment and kids’ zone. So, strap on your walking shoes and join us. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. You can make a positive impact on the life of a student seeking a higher education by forming a team or donating to the event.
Florida is the home of three historically black colleges and universities: Edwards Waters College, Florida Memorial University, Bethune-Cookman University, and Florida A & M University. More than 6,100 students statewide are getting their education with UNCF scholarships at colleges and universities across the country.
“We invite all members of the Tampa Bay community to join us as we raise money to send deserving young people to college,” said Gwen Hewitt, Area Development Director of UNCF. “Everyone who believes that ‘A mind is a terrible thing to waste®’ should attend as we inspire and empower our young people to secure passports to opportunity by way of their college degree.”
Special thanks to our previous sponsors for making this all possible: Suncoast Credit Union.
