5K Run / 1 Mile Walk for STEM

Location: Ma and Pa Trail, Bel Air, Maryland
Date: November 8, 2014

We invite you to support the Harford County community through participation and sponsorship of the third annual Young Armed Forces Communication Electronics Association (AFCEA) 5K Run, 1 Mile Walk, and Kids Fun Run which will be held at the Ma and Pa trail in Bel Air, Maryland on November 8th, 2014.

This event, hosted by the Aberdeen Chapter of Young AFCEA, is the Chapter’s largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds going towards science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiatives in Harford County. Now more than ever, it is important for students to have access to educational experiences that generate interest and enhance ability in the STEM disciplines.

The Young AFCEA Aberdeen Chapter has selected to donate proceeds raised from the Young AFCEA 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk to Edgewood Middle School’s FIRST LEGO League (FLL).  The FLL inspires future scientists and engineers to get excited about science and technology. Students research real-world challenges faced by Scientists to design, build and program autonomous robots and participate in FLL competitions to present their solutions to a panel of judges. Proceeds from this program will benefit students participating in this year’s FLL competition and could sponsor up to 4 teams from Edgewood Middle School to participate. The contributions will also go towards new equipment to allow the teams to independently program, research and design robots. 

Participant Registration Link:
