Science Fair Foundation BC announces virtual fundraiser for science fairs across BC & Yukon

March | 2021

 

Vancouver, British Columbia — After 20 years of setting the pace in the knowledge race as the Science Fair Fun Run, the Science Fair Foundation of BC has rebranded their major fundraiser as Sweatin’ for Science - a virtual race around BC and Yukon. 

Registration opens March 1 and individuals and teams will track their KM through an app from April 15 to May 29. This year they can take part in any setting, be it their living room, neighbourhood streets or ski hills. 

This year’s theme is the 1980’s, heading back to the days of big hair, neon, sweatbands and leg warmers. ‘Grab your Walkman, lace up your LA Gears and as Olivia Newton-John would say, 'Let's Get Physical'.’

Funds raised will ensure the success and sustainability of science fairs across BC and Yukon and participants are entered into prize draws for every $100 raised. 

"Participation helps foster a sense of excitement and discovery for young people in S.T.E.A.M.  while staying active and building community,” said Madeleine Guenette, Executive Director of Science Fair Foundation BC.

Now more than ever, it's important to connect! Colleagues can build culture and camaraderie with a corporate team. Families can spend more quality time together by going for an evening walk every night after dinner and the virtual race allows participants to connect virtually with friends at a time when we can't be together in person. 

"We are so excited for our presenting sponsor, STEMCELL Technologies, to be on board with us for the 2021 fundraiser,” said Guenette. 

All participants are encouraged to take photos 'getting their sweat on' and tag #sweatinforscience
