Trek for Tassels is a 5k run and healthcare initiative in its third year! 100% of the proceeds are used to create scholarships for the Santa Fe, NM area high school seniors who plan to serve in a healthcare field. Applicants for the scholarship must meet high academic and character standards to be eligible for the scholarship, and are awarded the scholarship at their graduation. The number of awards depends on the amount raised from the run, so we need your support.
In 2013, 1 $1500 scholarship was awarded to a Santa Fe High School Senior at his 2014 graduation.
Last year, 2 $1500 and 1 $500 scholarships were created and will be issued at 3 different high school graduation ceremonies this May.
Please join us in a fun, easy-going community 5K while supporting our future healthcare practitioners and caretakers!
