About the Event:

Formally known as Strip on the Strip; the Junior Achievement 4.01K Race for Financial Fitness! This event is a run/walk down Las Vegas Blvd during the month of April in honor of Financial Literacy Awareness Month! All proceeds from this event are going to support over 20,000 students in Southern Nevada as they learn more about financial literacy (how to be smart with your money and credit), how to be ready to join the workforce and how to think like an entrepreneur/business person. The Event consists of a 5k and 1 mile fun run where participants are encouraged to form teams and walk together! The race Starts/Ends at Hooters Hotel & Casino and runners run down Las Vegas Blvd. Participants receive race t-shirt, finisher medal, swag bag, and a ticket to the official After Party at the Hooters Hotel & Casino Pool.

Preparing Students for the Workforce:

During the race participants have the option to donate a piece of business attire at each 1K marker throughout the 5K course. Participants who opt to not donate during the race and are participating in the timed competitive start will be supplied with a bag at packet pick –up so they can donate prior to the race if they desire. All donations will be given to students in need of business attire for first interviews and jobs.
