The Strides for STEM 5K is a run/walk event supporting Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) outreach in North Carolina. Funds raised will support outreach events including North Carolina DNA Day and the WinSPIRE Summer Research Program. These programs break down barriers that surround STEM-based careers by allowing high school students to directly interact with STEM professions from leading research institutions in North Carolina. The run takes place on the beautiful campus of UNC Chapel Hill. 

Saturday, June 11, 2022 will be the first annual Strides for STEM 5K. Historically this event has been hosted as the NC DNA Day 5K, but this year, our outreach support has grown to include the WinSPIRE program, and with it came an opportunity for a bigger, better event! Strides for STEM aims to bring together STEM groups throughout the NC Research Triangle (and beyond) to promote community, outreach, and inclusivity for all STEM fields.
