Event Rescheduled due to COVID-19

Due to rising concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus, the Steps for STEM 5K staff has decided to reschedule our run/walk. The event will now occur on Saturday, October 10th at the same venue, Papillionís Walnut Creek Lake.

With emphasis on the safety of any of our walk/run participants, we have rescheduled our event due to the escalating concerns for public safety generated by the rapidly spreading coronavirus.

For those who have already registered, your registration will automatically be moved to the new date.
