On Wednesday, September 14, 2016, hundreds of IMTS visitors joined in the fun at DuSable Harbor for the M4M 5K Run/Walk. The exciting mid-week, early morning event took participants on a scenic route down Lake Shore Drive and loop around for a total of 3.1 miles. Prizes were awarded to top finishers and to the largest team, and craziest costume! “It’s was great start to your day and help out students every step of the way,” Shared IMTSTV reporter Kaitlyn Sales.
Proceeds from the M4M 5K at IMTS 2016 will be donated in the form of cash or equipment to the Chicago-based schools and community-based STEM organizations. Since its debut at IMTS 2014, M4M 5K has been run at meetings around the country and has raised more than $30,000 to assist schools and programs that promote careers in manufacturing.
