March for Science - Gainesville, FL
On April 22nd , we will be marching from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to Bo Diddley plaza to voice our concern for fact-based policy and proper funding for STEM programs/education. The march is directly followed by a Rally that will feature guest speakers, scientific expos, junior STEM programs, and much more.
This is a non-profit campaign and your donations will contribute to funding for permits, insurance, equipment, and other logistical expenses.
All remaining proceeds after the march are going to be donated to our local American Cancer Society!
For individual donations upward of 100 dollars, a free shirt of your choice will be delivered to your home or location of preference.
For company, organization, or individual donations upwards of 200 dollars, earn a spot on our official banner that will be seen when marching on University avenue and during our Science Rally!

We look forward to being on stage alongside such an honorable member of our scientific community!
Angela Ortega-Bermudez is a community physician in Henderson, Nevada and loves spending time with her three kids hiking, running and playing soccer.
Why did you donate?:
"This movement is important. I want to promote a love of science in a new generation. I would also like to continue exploring possibilities for treatment improvement for many illnesses. A great appreciation goes to all that are participating in this event"
Thank you, Angela, for your help in making this event possible and helping us raise funds for the local American Cancer Society.

Fortunately for our FL residents, The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge here in Gainesville is one of 32 national locations that offers free temporary housing for patients during treatment. Over 8,000 patients have been housed in our Hope Lodge, contributing to the 267,000 nights of lodging nationally provided by ACS.
ACS has also contributed to a 25% decrease in the overall US cancer death rate since 1991. This can be translated to saving 2.1 million lives during that time.
All remaining proceeds post-march will be going directly to our local ACS Center, please help us join their fight against cancer while providing the Gainesville community a free and important event.
