Registration is now open for the 15th Annual 5K PMC Science Fair Fun Run, and this year’s event will be one you won’t want to miss. The Fun Run has grown into the largest event in the technology sector and is now a major event in Vancouver. With tens of thousands of science technology supporters over the years, our goal is to have over 1,500 participants celebrating the Fun Run’s 15th anniversary. The 15th Annual Fun Run will take place on Sunday, May 25, 2014, at the Athlete’s Village Plaza and attracts participants from the tech community, industry, academia, and K-12 schools.
All registered Fun Run participants are eligible for prizes and will receive free admission to the TELUS World of Science on race day. Families can meet science fair participants, view science fair projects, and enjoy activities provided by sponsors as they await the results and the Awards Ceremony.
Register before the early bird deadline of April 30, 2013, for only $35 (adults 19 and over) and $20 (youths 18 and under), or participate in the 1K Mini Fun Run for children (with an accompanying adult), with an entry fee of $15 each. To register online, visit www.sciencefairs.ca/funrun/.
All proceeds from the event go to The Dr. Michael Smith Science Fair Endowment to support the promotion and development of Science Fair programs throughout the province. This year, BC Science Fair participant Ann Makosinski, age 15, of Victoria was the first Canadian to receive the Google Science Fair prize. Ann’s commitment to her Battery Free Flashlight project is a testament to the young talent that the Dr. Michael Smith Science Fair Endowment supports.
