Young AFCEANS Go Virtual for 5K Run for STEM

The chapter's Young AFCEANs (YACs) led by race director Will Keller, YAC president (industry), Copious Imaging, sponsored its Annual 5K Run/Walk for STEM virtually this year in September and October. With the help of generous sponsors and more than 140 race participants, the YACs raised almost $10,000. Partnering with Donors Choose, the proceeds will benefit Massachusetts classrooms requesting funding for STEM-related projects and activities. The race was both fun and competitive for participants with $500 in prizes awarded to male and female winners in two race categories (5km Division and Total Distance Division) and in the "Best Picture" category. The 5km Division winners included Seth Perry and Kristen Northrup (Under 30); Michael McGinley and Maribel Gonzalez (30-49); and Herman Correa-Diaz and Ruth Cardona Suarez (seniors over 50). There were six Total Distance awardees and ten for Best Picture.
