Holloway Park and Nature Preserve: 2402 Holloway Park Drive, Lakeland, United States
The Society of Women Engineers' 5K is a fundraising fun run that will be held in the BEAUTIFUL Holloway Park. This will be our fourth annual 5K. Join us on October 14th for an exciting race, plenty of fun games and an optional costume contest!
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, 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 scholarship program which helps encourage students to pursue education in a STEM field.
