The MFG Meeting will again host Miles 4 Manufacturing (M4M), a 5K race, which donates all proceeds to programs benefiting the development of the future manufacturing workforce.
Scheduled for Thursday, March 23, at 6:15 a.m., this exciting early morning event promises to energize you and your colleagues. The course takes you on a scenic route through the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort for a total of 3.1 miles. It’s a great start to your day and helps out students every step of the way.
Funds raised at this year's event will go to purchase a MakerGear 3D printer for Imperial Estates Elementary School, a Brevard County public school on Florida's Space Coast in Titusville, FL. The 3D printer will be used to enhance the STEM and Makerspace program in the school's media center.
Since its debut at IMTS 2014, the M4M 5K has been run at meetings around the country and has raised more than $45,000 to assist middle school, high school and technical college programs that promote careers in manufacturing. The IMTS tradeshow covers all of the cost associated with staging and promoting the M4M, so that 100% of all sponsor revenue and every dollar of runner registration fees go directly to the schools. Your support, whether as a sponsor, runner or a contributing spectator, directly benefits the students!
To show your support of the Miles for Manufacturing 5K, contact Bill Herman at 702-827-5282 or bherman@AMTonline.org.
