The City of Safety Harbor has cancelled all public events through the end of October. So, it is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 6th annual Manufacturing Education 5K event. We thoughtfully considered a virtual event; however, it quickly became clear that given the costs involved with such an event, it was best to distribute all donations to our beneficiaries.
We are extremely grateful to all who have supported this event over the past 6 years, cumulatively netting $136,350 in scholarships to worthy manufacturing students. This includes degree seeking students and accredited technical school students.
We wish to thank all the 2020 generous donors, which resulted in a total of $12,150 for this year’s event. Funds will be dispersed by year end, distributed evenly between SME, BAMA, AmSkills and Nuts Bolts & Thingamajigs. Your company name and logo will remain on the event website and promoted in event social media.
In looking ahead, please mark your calendars for Sunday, October 24, 2021 at Waterfront Park, located at 110 Veterans Memorial Lane in Safety Harbor, Florida for the 7th annual Manufacturing Education 5K!
