Hillsborough County Public Schools and the Full Service Centers Department are creating a (HCPS 90BY20) District Team to participate in the 2017 Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic 5K Run/Walk. The District’s participation will bring awareness to the strategic priority of increasing our graduation rate to 90% by the year 2020.

To support our 90BY20 goal we are giving our registered team members (students, parents, staff, and community members) an opportunity to pledge Going for the Gold 90BY20 at the Gasparilla Distance Classic expo at the HCPS 90BY20 table to commit their support.

Benefits for joining the team:

  • Support Hillsborough County Public Schools strategic priority of 90BY20
  • Increase individual wellness and fitness
  • Foster team building and improved partnerships with students, schools and the community

It’s More than a Race…. It’s Our Future.

Since 1978, the Gasparilla Distance Classic Association has donated $3.9 million to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa, Girls Inc. of Pinellas, The Friends of Tampa Parks & Recreation and youth running related programs.




This year and years to come, Hillsborough County Public Schools and the Full Service Center(s) plan to continue and expand our long time tradition of district employees, students and parents celebrating and working together in the community by participating in the 2017 Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic 5K Run/Walk.
