5th Annual Andrew Monroe Memorial Scholarship 5k Run/Walk
The proceeds will benefit the Riverview High School Soccer Scholarship that was created in Andrew's name and also form a fund at the Sarasota Community Foundation in Andrew’s name.
Registration is available by visiting www.andrewmonroe.com.
The fee is $35 runners and walkers. Andrew was a stellar goalkeeper for Riverview High School and tragically died in an automobile accident on March 13, 2011. Immediately after, the college scholarship was made available to senior boys on the Riverview High soccer team.
"Soccer was so important to Andrew and he was always devoted to his team and team mates. That is why we created this scholarship fund," said Stacey Monroe, Andrew's mother. "The 5K Run/Walk will help us continue the legacy in Andrew's honor."
Known as "Heaven's Goalie", Monroe excelled both in school and on the soccer field. Scholarship applicants are asked to write an essay describing their own similarities to the personal skills and attributes which Monroe possessed in his character and personality.
"Andrew did not have the opportunity to pursue his dreams, so with this scholarship fund we hope to help other young adults realize their goals in life," Monroe said. Andrew was a freshman at Florida Gulf Coast University and working on an athletic training degree. "One of his greatest qualities was compassion. We want that spirit to thrive for years to come."
Andrew had a heart for the unfortunate. Please bring a can or two of food for Mayors Feed the Hungry on race day.
