Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship
For the 3rd year in a row, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with Grace Outreach, a Bronx based nonprofit that works with women to further their education and gain financial independence. Through competitors’ fundraising efforts, the annual Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship assists low-income women in paying for their college tuition.
In 2017, competitors raised $35,000 in scholarship money. In total, we have raised over $65,000, and supported 10 women pursuing a higher education. We hope to match or exceed last year’s incredible show of support.
Entry Fee: $60 for non-CFSBK members; $50 for CFSBK members.
Includes: Eligibility for prizes, and a t-shirt.
Registration Deadline: April 27, 2018
Cancellation Policy: No refunds will be made after April 27, 2018. If you are not able to compete, please notify the Meet Director as soon as possible.
