Race for Scholars

Partner with us in rewriting their story!

Join the Proverbs226 team as we race to meet our scholarship funding goals so we can send our students to college in the Fall of 2020 and Spring of 2021. This is a virtual race where you can walk or run your 5K, you have one month to complete the race and each person who registers will receive a medal!

This is a unique opportunity to partner with 72 of our children who are going to college. You can help us break the cycle of recidivism by helping our children pursue their dreams.

Many of our children are the “first” in their generation to go to college.

Unfortunately, statistics are stacked against children with a parent in prison. The national average shows that 1 out of 8 children who drop out of high school will end up in a prison. The probability changes drastically when the same child goes to college instead, 1 in 100 will end up in a prison.

For every 5 children who’s story has been rewritten, the city and state will save roughly $5 million throughout the course of their lifetime. For merely 11% of that cost, we can send these same children to college!

Many of our children have a 3.5 or higher GPA and 1500+ in SATs. Over 40% of our children are completing a “double-major” in Bio-metrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Secondary Education.

It costs between $2,500 and $5,500 per year to send a child to college. This year, we are averaging about $15/day to send our children to college.

Your gift of any amount sows a seed in the lives of these children and will have a direct impact on generations to come to break the cycle of recidivism! Their children’s children will not be part of the negative statistics.
