The Monster Dash Virtual 5K Fun Run & Walk

The vision of this year's Urban 5K fun run and Halloween Celebration  is to establish a sustainable community-focused running event, encouraging families as well as athletes of all levels  to lead healthy lifestyles and further their personal fitness through running. This year we have gone virtual, encouraging our participants to run one - or all seven days - enjoying different themes, costumes, and activities each day and concluding with a virtual Finish Line filled with activities and celebration! Proceeds will benefit the thousands of youth and families who rely on our numerous community-based programs. Our comprehensive services encompass family support, youth development, mental health, workforce development, and criminal justice programs that arm youth and families with holistic health and well-being.
