About This Activity

The Society of Women Engineers' 5K is a fundraising fun run that will be held at Hillsborough River State Park. This is our second annual race and we are looking forward to a great turnout.

All proceeds will benefit the Student Section of the Society of Women Engineers at the University of South Florida. The funds raised will help the section continue their mission of promoting women in the engineering field through innovative workshops, national conferences, and superior networking, as well as community outreach that promotes STEM programs to students in middle and high school. A portion of the funds will support our new scholarship program which will encourage students to pursue education in a STEM field.

So lace up your sneakers to help the Society of Women Engineers! Remember to "Like" our Facebook page for updates and information!

NOTE: Price includes $5 park entry fee. Price increases to $30 on race day.
