Event description
The #Race4Wanza Doughnut Dash 5K is an annual community event established in loving memory of Tywanza Sanders and his unforgettable legacy.

About this event

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.

• If I register after July 23rd will I still get a swag bag & T-Shirt?

Solely depends on inventory. We only order T-Shirts based on total registrations at the deadline. If we purchase too many t-shirts = less scholarships funds and less good works for the community. We will have a limited amount of Shirts/Medals for sale.

100% back into the #Race4Wanza Fund! After all expenses of the event have been settled, the remaining fund allows us to award $4,000 in scholarships and start preparing for the next year.
