2020 Race Beneficiaries


CAPE COD BASEBALL LEAGUE - Youth Clinic Scholarships
cape cod baseball leagueThe Cape Cod Baseball League is the premier college summer league in the nation, dating back to 1885. The league recruits college players from across the country who quickly become part of the Cape community, living with local families and teaching youth clinics during the day. In addition to the fundamentals and skills of baseball, these college players are also role models, teaching the benefits of hard work, respect and teamwork to local kids in a fun environment. The Cape League players are very accessible after their nightly games, much to the delight of their clinic “students” who often attend with their parents to cheer on their mentors.

The Museum will be updating the Coastal Explorer Science Mobile Van with standards-based classroom curriculum and interactive exhibits. The van will travel to schools and other venues across the region with updatable educational programs designed to teach about local animals and their habitat, the environment and conservation efforts to protect Cape Cod.

Cape Kid Meals - Expanded Weekend Hunger Relief Program
cape kids mealsCape Kid Meals (CKM) has one goal: to fight childhood hunger across Cape Cod. Working with local schools, CKM helps provide meals to children who otherwise go with little or no food on weekends during the school year. The CKM backpack program discreetly provides at-risk elementary students with a bag of food each weekend throughout the school year. This food helps sustain the students’ nutritional needs over the weekends when school breakfasts and lunches are not available. Initially serving 50 children in 2 schools, the program has grown to feeding over 530 children in 24 schools each week and will continue to expand.
