Wednesday, July 12, 2017 6:30 AM MDT Broomfield, Colorado. 3rd Annual BAF Disaster Dash 5k

The 3rd Annual BAF Disaster Dash 5K 

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 
6:30 AM MDT 
Broomfield, Colorado  

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!

The BAF Disaster Dash 5K is an easy run (or walk or jog, if you prefer!) to experience the outdoors in Colorado, meet other attendees and get some fresh air and exercise. It was developed because of Bill Anderson's love of walking-which he did nearly six miles of each and every day! As the BAF grew, the Fellows wanted to pay tribute to Bill's love of being active outdoors and because they felt a need to 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 BAF!

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.
