SANFORD, Florida - Seminole State College Athletics is GROW-ing! More sports, more student-athletes and more community involvement. Join the Raider Student-Athletes, Coaches and staff as we host this 5k to help community partner GROW Central Florida, whose mission is to make a positive difference in children’s lives by increasing opportunities for healthy living. The GROWRaiders 5K has been scheduled for November 16, 2019. The date fits perfectly into a busy fall schedule.

The proceeds from this fun family 5k will benefit both GROW Central Florida and Raider Athletics. The course is flat and fast and will wind through the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus of Seminole State College. But if you prefer to walk, stroll or roll, you can do that too! This is a chip timed event for the more serious runner!

Please help support GROW Central Florida and Raider Athletics. Sponsorship information is linked above.
