Eighth annual Husky 5K May 11 in Bothell
The 8th annual Husky 5K will take place May 11 at the University of Washington Bothell.
The event benefits student scholarships at the university. Check in for the race begins at 8 a.m.
The race is expected to host 700-750 runners and walkers. The event features not only the 5K Run-Walk through campus and downtown Bothell, but also the Cascadia Pups and Cubs 1K.
There will be music, family-oriented attractions like face painting and a bouncy house, a complimentary breakfast directly after the race, prizes and giveaways for participants, and friendly faces at our sponsor booths.
All proceeds from the race benefit UW Bothell student scholarships. The run is one of the only events in the area devoted to this ever-increasingly important cause and is proud to support students in their endeavors to continue their education in more difficult economic times.
The UW Bothell Alumni Council endowed a $25,000 scholarship fund in January 2010, a direct result of the annual 5K. As we continue to raise funds, we’ll be able to help more deserving students with scholarships.
To date, the annual UW Bothell Husky 5K has raised over $60,000 for student scholarships.
