The 16th annual UW Bothell Virtual Husky 5K
Saturday May 15, 2021
The virtual Husky 5K is a fundraiser to support the UW Bothell COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund.
We've got a fun, engaging plan in place to ensure you're experiencing a collective, community event while practicing safe social distancing. Bonus: it's free for kids and includes an interactive video that's sure to get them moving.
In its 16 years, sponsors and participants like you have raised more than $175,000 to support UW Bothell student scholarships, awarded by the Alumni Council and their Alumni Endowed Scholarship. This year, the UW Bothell Alumni Council has chosen to direct the funds raised to the UW Bothell COVID-19 Emergency Student Fund, which continues to receive a record number of applications from students experiencing financial hardship during this unprecedented COVID pandemic.
