"What better way to give back to the community than to get involved with the Shumake Relays, which helps talented athletes and academic achievers make their college dreams come true? What Robert Shumake has created is a dream machine and I want to be part of it," says Mad Linx. "I am looking forward to not only seeing the races, but also meeting these students -Our next generation of leaders."
Sanctioned by the USA Track and Field Association, the Robert S. Shumake Family Scholarship Relays brings together students to compete for individual and team trophies and college scholarships.

Founded by former Detroit all-city track star, businessman Robert Shumake, CEO of Inheritance Investment Group, the event is fast becoming one of the top relays in the country. It is already the largest high school relay in Detroit. Shumake has long been committed to helping the youth obtain their dreams. Along with his many corporate contacts and connections, Robert has been able to provide scholarship funding for the relays. This unique track and field meet not only awards the winners with medals and trophies but also provides college scholarships to qualified participants. The scholarships are administered through the Detroit branch of United Negro College Fund.
