Principals from six schools recently received a combined total of $17,000 in donations, thanks to the 19th annual FishHawk Ranch Road Race.

The six schools — Bevis Elementary, FishHawk Creek Elementary, Stowers Elementary, Barrington Middle, Randall Middle and Newsome High — each received checks for $2,827 that will be used for educational enhancements.

Additionally, the FishHawk Road Runners will receive a $1,500 contribution to its scholarship fund.

In January, more than 500 runners of all skill levels participated in the race.

Hundreds of residents also turned out to cheer on the runners as they raced throughout the FishHawk Ranch community, a 4,100-acre master-planned community located in southeast Hillsborough County.
