Join us for our annual fundraiser at Etowah River Park at 2PM on Sunday October, 22nd for running, walking, fun in the sun, a few prizes, and hopefully a few surprises!!

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING SPONSORS! Please click HERE to find out how!

We at the Wentworth Institute of Science and Health believe in investing in the future of science. We believe the best way to do that is to bring the community together in hopes of achieving that goal. The net profits from this event will go toward High School scholarships for students heading into STEM majors and grants to further develop the careers of current STEM undergraduate and graduate students. Come join us for our 5K celebration of STEM and stick around for a sip of wine afterwards, because everything's better with some wine in the belly.
