The event served as a fundraising opportunity to support the Anchin Center’s professional development activities. Each year, the Anchin Center welcomes thousands of educators and school leaders from across the state of Florida to participate in innovative trainings and professional development opportunities to strengthen their work in K-12 schools.  
The event took place on USF’s Tampa campus and attracted more than 500 Tampa Bay area teachers, students, community members and education advocates who participated as runners, volunteers, and advocates in support of K-12 schools and the teaching profession.

The Anchin Center’s mission is to work with K-12 teachers toward restructuring schools in ways that improve the quality of education, and to restructure the teaching profession in ways that enhance schools’ ability to attract and retain able teachers.
