Mission: Hero’s STEAM Center is a place to Create, Explore, Innovate and Share Knowledge in the Red Lodge area. It’s where experimenting and exploring are encouraged and things you imagine making, learning or doing are possible!

What are you fundraising for this year?

Our most important goal is keeping the STEAM Center door and Observatory roof open by having funds to cover rent and insurance. It costs us $8,464 dollars/year to do just that!

What impact will funds have on your mission and community?

Fun Run funds support Hero’s afterschool programs, summer youth programs and Whistler Observatory openings and events for stargazing and RLDS Education. Hero’s offers every one of these for free to the community. Our mission requires space for operations and a certain level of equipment and materials to organize and conduct hands-on learning and activities.

If you participated last year, what did you use the funds for?

2023 Fun Run funds were used again to “keep the door open” at Hero’s by covering the rent and insurance costs for our space at the Roosevelt Center. In addition, we fed a ton of snacks to a lot of hungry kids at each program session, purchased 3 refurbished chrome laptops and renewed our Zoom Pro license.

Fundraising Goal: $8,000
