Pinellas will hold Ties and Tennis Shoes 5K Saturday



Just a friendly reminder that the Ties and Tennis Shoes 5K is scheduled for Saturday at Tropicana Field.

The annual race raises money for the Take Stock in Children scholarship program. The event is organized by the Pinellas Education Foundation and is preceded by a gala, also at the Trop. The finish line for the 5K is on the turf of the Trop, with finisher photos on Ray Vision. The event includes a 5K, a one-mile fun run and a kids dash.

Registration is available online now and also on the morning of the event. It's $25 to run the 5K. 

Pinellas County school superintendent Mike Grego has organized a team for the event among school employees.
