Over the past 25 years, the Scramble for Kids has raised over $2,000,000 for local charities who support children in Alachua County. Steve and Jerri Spurrier founded this event in 1991 and Dan and Megan Mullen are excited to partner with Boys and Girls Club and Girls Place this year!
Boys & Girls Club of Alachua County, Inc., a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, is a voluntary organization dedicated to promoting leadership, character, health and career development while emphasizing social, cultural and educational growth. Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
At Girls Place, we empower girls to grow courageous, strong and self sufficient. We inspire our girls to celebrate themselves—their minds, their hearts, and their physical well being. Girls Place girls become independent women who embrace diversity, express their ideas, rise above obstacles, enhance their communities, and lead those around them. At Girls Place, we believe that all girls should be inspired, challenged and nurtured to become their very best.
