Just as dawn broke over the Las Vegas skyline yesterday morning, 250 runners gathered below the iconic Hilton Hotel sign to race a 5k course in a bid to raise funds for the AEM Foundation, which supports the Construction Challenge initiative.

The event co-ordinated by Maximum Capacity Media and sponsored by exhibitors at ConExpo-Con/Agg, raised US$5000, which will be used to continue the work of the AEM Foundation to encourage young people to consider a career in construction.
