The 501(c)(3) nonprofit will benefit from local resident, real estate businessman, and U.S. Navy veteran Eric Tatro's Fundraising On Foot, River to Beach Run to include a 36-mile run from his home in Julington Creek Plantation, to the Beachcomber St. Augustine at 2 A Street in St Augustine Beach on Saturday, July 3. The marathon runner is raising funds for INK! due to his family's values and belief in quality education for all children in the region and much-needed help for teachers and students in public schools.
Tatro, his wife Cherise Lloyd, and their two young sons moved to St. Johns County from Texas in 2016, specifically for their jobs and for the boys to attend the top school system in Northeast Florida. Since arriving in the region, Tatro has become involved in the community and serves on the board for the St. Johns Chamber of Commerce's North Business Council, along with friend and co-board member Donna Lueders, the Executive Director for INK!. Tatro is a Real Estate Agent in St. Augustine, Fla. with the brokerage Florida Homes Realty & Mortgage LLC, and is a Senior Property Manager for Commonwealth Commercial in Jacksonville. He is a running enthusiast for more than 20 years.
Lloyd is a Portfolio Manager in Debt Capital Markets for Macquarie Capital in Jacksonville. She is working to facilitate donations for INK! with The Macquarie Group Foundation matching in accordance with the foundation's guidelines.

"My family and I owe a debt of gratitude to the educators in St. Johns County. Donna Lueders and her organization deserve support from all who can give," said Tatro. "At a recent networking event, I decided to challenge myself and attendees to raise funds for the nonprofit by completing the run for $100 a mile," he said.
