3/13/20 – Soar in 4 Coronavirus (COVID-19) UPDATE!


After talking with all of our key committee members we have decided that the responsible action to take will be to reschedule the upcoming Soar in 4 Professional Development and cancel the Soar in 4 family event at the Bishop Museum. This was not done without long thought and consideration.

As uncertainty grows over the potential impact of the unprecedented Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Manatee County, it is with great regret that Soar in 4 will reschedule the Outdoor Professional Development training and cancel the family event scheduled for Saturday, March 21st 2020 at The Bishop Museum.

The health and well-being of our children and their family’s is always paramount and, as we noted other agencies and organizations beginning to cancel events with expected large attendances, we have decided to cancel our Soar in 4 family event in the best interests of our attendees and the local community as a whole.

We would like to thank everyone for their support of these events but believe we were left with no option but to place the welfare of the community first.
