About the Robot Run
The 3rd Annual Robot Run is the major fundraising and awareness event for South Jersey Robotics, Inc.. The annual Robot Run is a timed 5K run/walk and a 2K family walk, plus robot demonstrations, which will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2017, in the beautiful City Park in Bridgeton, New Jersey. We also provide our participants with free refreshments and family entertainment. Right up the street you can also visit the free Cohansey Zoo right in the park. Please support our teams and join us for a day of exercise and fun!
Why is South Jersey Robotics having a Robot Run?
For many students in the tri-county area, low income is a barrier – they cannot afford to attend college and get a good-paying job. South Jersey Robotics sponsors robotics teams in the region in an effort to help change that by giving them a fun way to acquire STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills. The Robot Run fundraiser lowers the cost of joining our teams.
Benefits to our students include gaining access to over $50 million in scholarships through FIRST® Robotics. Our students have the invaluable opportunity to work with and learn from professionals from many careers. Students graduating from our teams are recruited for internships and jobs by top colleges and major companies like DuPont, PSEG and Boeing. Students also develop confidence to pursue their dreams – their lives are changed by their time on our teams!
