The TXCPA Austin Scholarship Committee challenges its fellow members, colleagues and their families to a virtual 5k Fun Run for the month of October 2021. All proceeds from this event directly benefit the TXCPA Austin Scholarship Fund.
Since its inception in 2004, the TXCPA Austin CPE Foundation has awarded over $150,000 in scholarships to juniors, seniors and graduate students who plan to become CPAs and enter the accounting profession. Your support is what keeps our scholarship program strong year after year!
What is a virtual race? A virtual race is very similar to a live race – you register, you run or walk (on the honor system), you receive medal and shirt in support of a great cause – but you complete your 5K from anywhere you like! It can be the neighborhood, treadmill, track, country roads, etc.
Race Swag: Swag bags will be shipped six-eight weeks after the virtual race ends. The $35 registration fee includes a t-shirt and finisher’s medal. The $60 registration fee includes a t-shirt, ball cap and finisher’s medal. Shipping is also included in the registration fee.
Social Media: Have fun, take pics and be sure to tag #CPAsCount when you share through your social media channels! Please send any pictures to Linda Messing.
