STEMinist 5K Glow Run to Benefit Girls Inc.

RAPID CITY, S.D. (March 30, 2016) – The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology’s Women in Science & Engineering (WiSE) and Alpha Omega Epsilon sorority will host the first-ever STEMinist Star 5K Glow Run/Walk on Saturday, April 16, to raise money for Girls Inc.

Registration will be from 6-7:15 p.m. at Main Street Square, and the race will begin at 7:30 p.m. The race will loop through the bike path with a water station near M Hill, finishing at Main Street Square, where there will be a dance party hosted by Prima School of Dance. Nosh Food Truck will be on-site after the race.

“Partnering with Girls Inc. is a natural fit for both WiSE and Alpha Omega Epsilon to encourage young girls to develop strong leadership skills, a sense of sisterhood, and to encourage natural ability and interest in STEM fields,” said Lisa Carlson, director of WiSE.

Registration is $20 for students, $25 for community members, with kids 12 and under free. All proceeds go to Youth & Family Service’s Girls Inc. program.
