Support Our Schools / What are the Students Saying

100% of the race profits benefit the Seaside School, a tuition-free, local neighborhood school serving students who not only live along Hwy. 30-A, but also across Walton County. The Seaside School opened in 1996 to thirty-six students, two faculty members, and one administrator serving students in sixth through eighth grades. Today, the school has expanded to fifth through twelfth grades serving over 330 students and currently looking to add grades K-4.

Every year, the gap between The Seaside School standard of excellence and the funding provided by the state seems to grow more and more. There are either funding cuts or we simply want more for the students. In any case, the shortfall is significant each year. Whether you’re a runner, sponsor, or enjoying the Taste of the Race, please know that your support is needed and appreciated. Your participation reduces class size. Your participation provides middle school and high school students the opportunity to participate in elective classes for gardening, music, art, modern jazz and ballet, an award winning robotics program, advanced placement classes, the Duke of Edinburgh International Award program as well as career-readiness industry certification courses. Great things are happening at the Seaside School – Thanks to you!

…I like the mentoring program because it is a great opportunity for us to learn about different jobs and what people do...
