3rd Annual BAF Disaster Dash 5K
July 12, 2017
The 2017 BAF Disaster Dash will be held in concurrence
with the 42nd Annual Natural Hazards Research and Applications
Workshop, an event with international attendance that will be hosted July
9-12 by the University of Colorado Boulder Natural Hazards Center.
Whether you are attending the workshop or are a local community
member looking to contribute to a good cause, we invite you to join
us for a fun run!

inject movement and fellowship into the Workshop experience.
If you are not attending the workshop, we are thrilled to
offer you the opportunity this year to participate virtually - including
supporting individuals and teams who are running/walking to support the
This event is an important way that we promote and support hazard and
disaster mitigation for communities of color and other vulnerable populations. The
BAF is dedicated to improving disaster preparedness, response,
and recovery in marginalized communities by connecting students and
early career professionals from underrepresented groups to careers
in disaster mitigation, response, and research.
