Raise money for Peer Power Foundation

These races will fund Peer Power’s mission to empower and inspire scholars through their innovative student-to-student tutoring program. Peer Power is active in schools throughout Memphis and Mississippi, serving more than 1,000 students every year. Since its inception in 2005, the program has resulted in significant increases in test scores, scholarship awards, and graduation rates for students involved in the program. The U.S. Department of Education named Peer Power the Division Winner for Out-of-School programs for its 2012 National Education Startup Challenge


In 2015, Peer Power announced the Memphis Model in partnership with Shelby County Schools and University of Memphis. The program employs over 100 University of Memphis Success Coaches who are trained and deployed into high school classrooms. This unique configuration reduces the student to teacher ratio from about 28 to 1 down to roughly 7 to 1.
