We hope you'll join us for the 10th Annual Bill Anderson Fund Disaster Dash, which will be held in concurrence with the 49th Annual Natural Hazards Research and Applications Workshop. It doesn't matter if you want to contribute to a good cause or just stretch your legs, this fun run will help you do both.

The Disaster Dash 5K is an easy jog (or walk, if you prefer). Proceeds from the run support the Bill Anderson Fund mission to expand the number of professionals from historically underrepresented groups in the fields of hazards and disaster research and practice.

If you are not interested in running or walking the 5K, the Fund also offers the option to support individuals and teams who are in the race or donate directly to the organization.
