All proceeds from the Popsicle Run will support youth-led projects in Davie County! Organized under the Davie Community Foundation, the SURF (Students Understanding Real Futures) Board is a youth grant making organization for high school aged youth in Davie County. Each year SURF hosts a fundraiser to raise money to grant out in the spring. The proceeds from the Popsicle Run will serve to empower young people by supporting their projects through grants from SURF.

The SURF Board
The SURF Board provides students with an opportunity to learn about philanthropy; giving of their time, talents, and treasures to make life better for others.  Board members learn about needs in the community, the responsibilities that go along with giving, as well as important leadership skills that will serve them well into adulthood.

The 2012-2013 SURF Board includes the following members: Katie Allison, Bibiana Arroyo, Rachel Baker, Grace Cain, Salem Carney, Robert Daniel, Stephen Daniel, Caroline Davis, Evan Dowell, Morgan Fuller, Scott Gallimore, Molly Hartness, Sam Linville, Noah MacDonell, Saul Navarro, Taylor Nelson, Zachary Osborne, Nick Sinopoli, Hampton Smith, Allison Staley, Brooke Summers, Cassidy Webb.
