Run for Robots 5k

ATTRACTIONS: Kick off the fall season with a run/walk in Lapeer’s beautiful Rowden park trail.
Although a fun race for everyone, it will still be timed for participants who like to have those numbers!
The Chimeras will also have interactive robot demonstrations in the pavilion before and after the event, so participants can get a glimpse at what the team does.

PURPOSE OF THE EVENT: To raise funds for The Chimeras FIRST Robotics Competition Team. They are a free to play, high school aged team, who count on generous donations, investors and fundraising to keep the team running. Proceeds will help pay for robot parts, competitions, travel & other expenses which can be near $50,000 a year.

Being a part of a robotics team impacts students in ways that are life changing. A wide array of skills learned that are valuable for future careers, scholarships earned, job ready at graduation, youth mentoring, volunteering, leadership and relationships that build character. It’s an experience like no other and definitely more than just robots! Supporting this program helps to shape these students lives!

CHARITY DONATION:This year the team also wanted to help another important non-profit in our area,The Family Literacy Center. 10% of all our proceeds will go to this charity to further support education in our community. Please see their website for more details on all they do for our community and the programs they run. www.readlapeer.org
