Heads up science supporters. Dangerous weather has postponed the March for Science scheduled for Sunday.
April 15th Event Postponed
Dangerous weather expected
CLEVELAND, Ohio March for Science Cleveland has been postponed.
Expected to draw thousands of supporters, March for Science Cleveland will not go forward as planned. Organizer Martins Krebs, local artist and co-chair of the March for Science: Cleveland, stated Friday: “March for Science Cleveland holds the safety and well being of all participants as the utmost priority during these events. March for Science Cleveland also prioritizes the teaching elements of their rallies, through both child-friendly activities, and informative speeches given by scientists. Based on weather forecasts, it seems clear that these primary goals cannot safely be achieved on the scheduled day. It is with great remorse, that the April 15th event has been postponed.”
A local collaboration of grassroots volunteers and science-based organizations were planning the March for Science to take place at Public Square on April 15.
Krebs continued “The weather has proved a challenge we cannot overcome. With Thunderstorms likely, and winds exceeding 20mph throughout the day, the safety of the March has been compromised. This is not the end of the March, it will be rescheduled and other spin-off events will be added to its repertoire through this summer. There is plenty to look forward to before next year, so stay tuned!”
“The support we have received is incredible,” says Krebs, “We want to honor those supporting us by continuing forward with our mission, to rally, support, and to give back to our supporters and their communities. There is a lot to be looking forward to.”
