Denim Dash: Are YOU Ready to Run for RARE?

January 26, 2015


Click here to register for the 2016 Denim Dash!


Beginning March 21st, supporters from all over the nation will run/walk 3.1 miles to raise money and awareness for rare disease. This is a virtual race, so you have the flexibility to participate wherever, whenever is most convenient for you! Register to run/walk anytime between March 21-29, 2015–It’s that easy!

The Denim Dash 5K Run/Walk was created through collaborative efforts between Orphan Drug Solutionsand Global Genes™ as our first annual virtual 5K event. This virtual 5K is designed to ensure that anyone, anywhere, can participate and show their support and raise awareness for patients, family and friends of the Rare Disease Community, while also helping enrich and sustain the educational programs created by Global Genes!

Use any running app or map your course online to determine a 3.1 mile route near you. Then, you can share your 5K completed course (or along the way!) with your friends, family, and other members of the rare disease community through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or even Vine by using#DenimDash2015!

Can’t do 3.1 miles? No problem! The best part about this virtual 5k is that you can walk, run, ride, or even skip as long or short of a distance as you want! All you have to do is register.

To maximize your impact, ask your friends and family to sponsor your run! Ask for donations per mile or ask for a flat amount for the total race. Please also keep in mind that there’s no set amount for sponsorship, so your friends and family can sponsor you at any level that’s feasible for them.

Remember, this is an awesome opportunity to raise awareness for those you are dashing for, all while supporting the educational resources created by Global Genes! By using #DenimDash2015 on any social media platform, you’ll be able to share your experience and story with the whole Rare Community!
