Another record crowd at Alaska Airlines Dawg Dash

Alaska Airlines Dawg Dash, the annual 5K walk/run and 10K run, is one of the UWAA’s biggest events of the year, bringing together a wide range of members of the UW community, from alumni, students and staff to fitness-focused residents who live in the area. In this dog-friendly event, they gather to be active, enjoy a run through the beautiful UW campus and support students. Proceeds go to the University of Washington General Scholarship Fund.

This year’s event, held on Sunday, Oct. 22, followed up a successful 2016 Dawg Dash, which saw record attendance and raised record amounts for students. Bolstered by support from the business community, such as Alaska Airlines, Brooks Running, PEMCO, WSECU, UW Medicine, BECU and University Boostore, a new high bar was set with 4,300 Dawg Dashers. Early returns show we raised over $20,000 for scholarships, proving once again what we can do when we come together as a powerful UW community. Together we can!
