College Scholarship Donations
The 8 Tuff Miles College Scholarships
The 8 Tuff Miles College Scholarships began in 2003.
These scholarships are awarded to the first place boy and girl in the three youngest age groups. The three youngest age groups are as follows:
12 and under, 13 to 16, and 17 to 19. A total of 6 prizes are awarded each year.
The first place boy and the first place girl in the 12 and under age group each receive a college scholarship in the amount of $500.00.
The first place boy and the first place girl in the 13 to 16 age group each receive a college scholarship in the amount of $800.00.
The first place boy and the first place girl in the 17 to 19 age group each receive a college scholarship in the amount of $1000.00.
The money will stay in an escrow account with the 8 Tuff Miles attorney until the child has graduated high school and is ready for college. At that time a check will be written in both the college’s name and the child’s name. This money will be use for continuing education after high school only. The recipient has up to five years after he or she has graduated high school to collect his or her winnings.
The winners of these college scholarships must be officially registered in the 8 Tuff Miles Race. These entries can be from ANY part of the world.
Anyone attempting to not follow the rules of the race and challenge for the winnings of these scholarship will be banned from the event.
