This outstanding 5K is unique in that community members and homeless students have a chance to run or walk together during the event. Participants will not be aware of which students are homeless, as a reminder that homelessness can happen to anyone.
Families In Transition works with the community to ensure that all barriers are removed so homeless children can attend and succeed in school. The basic needs of homeless students in Seminole County Public Schools are addressed through community support – clothing, school supplies, food, hygiene items, emergency assistance, and other necessities. Last school year 2,001 students were helped by this program. So far, we have identified more than 1,670 students this school year.
