The board of OBX GO FAR, Inc. non-profit after school running program for children across the Outer Banks, is seeking applications for its College and Continuing Education Fund – The Miles Education Fund.

The College and Continuing Education Fund was named in honor of the late GO FAR coach and runner Shane Miles. OBX GO FAR, Inc. continues to recognize excellence by awarding gifts across the Outer Banks community.

To date, OBX GO FAR, Inc. has awarded $7,000 in college education funds since 2018. “The fund has grown over the years thanks to the generosity of the founders Sarah and Rodney Benson with their family and another donation from the Billfish Tournament,” stated a press release from the organization.
