Let’s Talk About 5K – What it brings to the community


The 5k Unity Run/Walk is not just any ordinary event. Partnered with the Sikh Society of Florida and Town of Southwest Ranches, FL it brings about awareness as to who Sikhs are as well as a way for people of all backgrounds to come together and raise money for scholarships. Raising funds for education is an important aspect of being able to go to school and learn. Not many individuals have that opportunity and that is what we aim to change. This 5k enables us to do that with the support of the community.

Raising funds for education is extremely important for our community. Helping someone achieve an education is one of the greatest gifts. Education is something no one can take away from you.  Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most important weapon which you can use to change the word.”  With our 5k race, we are trying to do just that. Our association is raising funds to provide deserving students with scholarship funds by hosting a 5k race. 5k race is not only fun but it brings our community together and promotes awareness for the importance of education. When we all work collectively, we can achieve anything. I hope you will join us in this mission!

People coming together and having a great time is just one of the things this 5K accomplishes. Raising money for education in our very own town can’t get better than that! Meeting new people that live just down the street or miles away in another city is a fun and ecstatic adventure as we get to learn things about each other and build a connection with the community. This is what makes the 5K Run/Walk unique and different. It is an event everyone will remember and enjoy!
