Race Sponsors:

Since its debut at IMTS 2014, the Miles for Manufacturing (M4M) 5K has been run at meetings around the country and has raised more than $60,000 to assist middle school, high school and technical college programs that promote careers in manufacturing.

The IMTS tradeshow covers all of the cost associated with staging and promoting the M4M, so that 100% of all sponsor revenue and every dollar of runner registration fees go directly to the schools. Your support, whether as a sponsor, runner or a contributing spectator, directly benefits the students!

Lend your support to this excellent cause by becoming a sponsor of Miles for Manufacturing 5K! Sponsor packages delivering terrific brand recognition start at as little as $500. For more information, contact Bill Herman at 703-827-5282 or
