Scholarship FUNds Dash

USSD’s Scholarship FUNds Dash

April 23, 2024, Seattle, Washington

Departs from the conference hotel lobby

Grab your colleagues and join us for a run (5K) or walk (3K) around Seattle to raise money for the USSD Kim de Rubertis Scholarships and have fun in the process! This year we will break into groups based on speed preference (welcome runners AND walkers) and a guide will take you on a tour of Downtown Seattle. In the spirit of raising funds for scholarships, you’re encouraged to sport apparel from your university.

Don't want to run or walk? You can still register and get a medal!
