About This Activity

Join fellow New York City Huskies for the third annual Dawg Dash NYC 5K Walk & Run, held in support of the University of Washington Alumni Association’s NY Chapter Scholarship Fund for UW students from the tri-state area. A coast-to-coast celebration of Husky spirit, Dawg Dash brings the UW community to make strides in the advancement of academic scholarships and higher education.

Last year we raised over $5,000 for the NY Chapter Scholarship Fund. View photos from the 2015 Dawg Dash NYC!
