2023 Event Information
Primos Dallas is kicking off our inaugural Run the Grove 5K on Saturday, April 15, 2023! Our mentoring program serves families in the southeast Dallas area of Pleasant Grove and we are excited to bring a certified 5K race with official timing to the neighborhood. We will also have a Fun Run course, and family friendly activities, including free food, music, photo booth, and games.
Join us to raise scholarship funds for high school and college students. Since 2018, Primos has awarded $50,000 in scholarships. Our goal this year is to award scholarships to 7 students participating in our mentoring program. We aim to alleviate the burden of post high school educational costs for first generation students.
Over our first four years, Primos awarded $50,000 in scholarships to high school and college students. This year we plan to give scholarship awards to 7 students. The students are carefully selected from our Primos mentoring participants. We aim to alleviate the burden of college costs for first generation students.
