April 1-18, 2022
Since 1989, the FICPA Scholarship Foundation has hosted a 5K race in South Florida. This year, we will celebrate the 33rd annual race in April with a virtual race across the state.
The annual event has had tremendous support and has become a great opportunity to end the tax season farewell, get out from behind the desk, exercise and contribute to a very worthwhile scholarship fund.
Proceeds from the event are awarded to deserving accounting students including 3 scholarships in memory of Lewis Davis, Miami-Dade County’s first African-American CPA, community leader, and co-founder of the Greater Miami-South Florida Chapter - National Association of Black Accountants, Inc.
Since its inception, the 1040K race committee has raised more than $250,000 in scholarship funds.
Submit your picture and we will post it on our social media channels or post it and use #1040k.
What is a Virtual Run/Walk?
A virtual race is one that can be run or walked at any location you choose. Our virtual run is staged completely on the honor system. By registering, we assume you will complete the 5K distance of 3.1 miles at one time/in one go.
Registration is $30.00 per runner. This will include a t-shirt and a medal that will be mailed to you.
You have 15 days to choose from to complete your run or walk! The run kicks off on Friday, April 1, 2022 and you have until 9:00 pm on Friday, April 18, 2022 to complete your run and record your time.
Run in the morning, the afternoon or any time you want! This is your chance to schedule your run around your time and the weather! No need to run in the rain!
Participants will be able to complete the 5K run or walk wherever they want during the fifteen days of the event! You can choose to run or walk in your neighborhood or at a park. If you want to get creative, you could even hike, walk your dog, or use your treadmill to complete the 5K distance of 3.1 miles.
