Dr. Shumake is setting a GOOD EXAMPLE of volunteerism and entrepreneurship.  I call it "Social Capitalism."   I am a "Social Capitalist" . . . a term I coined years ago.  This is an example of what it truly means.  Thanks Robert!!  You make a difference!

Robert Shumake has the opportunity to give back to the community as this event helps kids go to college


Detroit, MI - Robert Shumake understands the significance and the impact that organized team sports can have on a young person.  He attributes some of his many business achievements to the positive experiences he had as a member of Detroit's Edwin Denby High School's track team.  As an athlete, Robert saw the big picture and was able to transfer critical life skills from track and field to his real life situations.  He learned discipline, dedication, perseverance and teamwork.


The Robert Shumake Foundation is gearing up for the 5th annual Shumake Scholarship Relays which will be held in Detroit on April 25, 2009.  Since its inception, the event has raised over $30,000 for scholarships to help over 5,000 young people attend college.  Robert said, "Track and field kept me out of trouble as it taught me the discipline to focus on being the best I could be.  Now I'm giving back to the community by helping today's young people achieve their dreams."


The Robert S. Shumake Scholarship Relays is one of the top meets in the nation, highlighting both athletic ability and academic achievement.  In addition to teams demonstrating superior athletic ability during the events, prizes are awarded to the athlete on each team with the highest grade point average.


Robert Shumake is the author of a book entitled, For Entrepreneurs who have Considered Suicide when Business got Tough.  Proceeds from the sale of his book go to support the scholarship program.  Find out more about the Shumake Relays event at
