From our friends at the TyWanza Sanders Scholarship Fund…
Join the community for the 6th Annual Doughnut Dash in honor of TyWanza Sanders!
Due to COVID-19 we’ve incorporated a registration where you can participate from the comfort of your neighborhood or where you are. This community supported, family friendly run/walk is held each year in honor of the life and legacy of TyWanza Sanders and is put on by Race 4 Achievement Inc. The run/walk is a fundraiser to continue our mission of strengthening the community and supp1orting diversity in the Charleston #commUNITY. All funds raised will be donated to the TyWanza Sanders Scholarship Fund; providing college scholarships for students in Charleston County Schools.
Tywanza Sanders , a man with a philanthropic spirit and a commitment to the achievement of youth in his community and beyond, was the youngest victim of the 2015 Mother Emanuel Church Massacre. To honor his life and continue his legacy, Race 4 Achievement Inc . (R4A) created this family friendly community run/walk to provide funds for R4A’s TyWanza Sanders Scholarship Fund and other philanthropic outreach programs.
Proceeds from this event have allowed R4A to award $12,500 worth of scholarships since the event’s inception to minority high school graduates in the Charleston area. The TyWanza Sanders Scholarship Fund includes The TyWanza Sanders Scholarship at James Island Charter High , West Ashley High, and Burke High School awarding $1,000 scholarships at each school to a minority graduating senior, The Dan Stern Citadel Scholarship awarding a minority Charleston area graduate attending The Citadel with $500, and the newly established Malik Samir Werts Scholarship awarding a minority graduating senior from the Charleston County School of the Arts.
