Tonkon Torp was a sponsor at Marathon Scholars' Winter Gold event on February 28. The event raised over $80,000. The Marathon Scholars program identifies students whose socio-economic situation may present them with profound challenges but who have great promise and untapped potential. The program model utilizes a combination of mentoring, college scholarships, and enrichment opportunities to invest in these children early and help remove the obstacles they will face on their journey to a college degree. Jeff Cronn, a Marathon Scholars board member and co-founder, organized Tonkon's participation with and attendance at the event.
