Join AAUW-Anacortes for the Jingle Bell Dash 5k Run/Walk and Kids Dash to Santa, and help raise money for AAUW STEM programs for girls in our community. New to 2017 is the 10K distance that runs through downtown Anacortes and also along the Tommy Thompson Trail.
AAUW-Anacortes sponsors STEM programs for girls at Anacortes Middle School and Anacortes High School. Nominated by teachers and counselors, programs include Tech Trek for 7th graders, science and math achievement awards for 8th graders, and scholarships for seniors in Math, Science and Technology. This event is being established in an effort to develop sustainable funding for our programs, as well as create a fun community event and develop more community awareness of AAUW and what we do. Additionally, the Kids Dash to Santa will raise non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army food bank in Anacortes.
