Looking forward to DC? Us too! Get excited for the MIP Fun Run! 

Healthy scientists are happy scientists!  Stretch your tired legs and join fellow chemists for the Younger Chemists Committee/Member Insurance Program's 5K Fun Run/Walk. The  bi-annual Fun Run, sponsored by the ACS Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) and ACS Member Insurance Program, will be held on Monday, August 21st, 2017 at 6:45 AM.

City Running Tours will provide American Chemical Society and its attendees with a guided running tour of National Mall, monuments and surrounding neighborhood in Washington, D.C. The meeting location for the run will be the southern entrance of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, at 801 Mount Vernon Pl. NW. The run will begin and end at this location.

The cost of the Fun Run is $30 per participant ($15 for students). Participants can register with ACS National Meeting registration (online or on site). If you are not attending the national meeting, you can still participate in the Fun Run! Check it out here:

No in person registration will be allowed on Monday morning.   Each participant will need to sign a waiver prior to participation.

What is the Younger Chemists Committee?

The main mission of the YCC is to advocate for and provide resources to early-career chemists and professionals in the chemical sciences and related fields. The YCC addresses specific issues facing younger chemists within the ACS and serves as a voice to the Society on behalf of younger chemists. As young representatives of ACS, our goals are to make the ACS relevant to younger chemists, to dramatically increase the involvement of younger chemists in all levels of the ACS, and to integrate younger chemists into the profession. Featured above: YCC members at the 250th ACS National Meeting and Exposition in Boston.
