You are invited!

Virtual Dash for Diversity 5K from September 25th to October 3rd 2021.

We invite you to celebrate diversity in our communities and to support the building of our pipeline programs. NSU MD will host its 2nd Virtual Dash for Diversity 5K from September 25th to October 3rd, 2021. We will come together virtually, across Florida and from coast-to-coast, to raise funds to support our pipeline programs with local middle and high schools. These enrichment programs engage middle and high school students who are socioeconomically disadvantaged and underrepresented in medicine through mentorship and various science, technology, engineering, and math related activities. Through these programs, we aim to encourage a diverse group of students to consider a career in medicine, as well as to give them the support that they need to make these dreams a reality. Funds raised from the 5K will go directly into these pipeline programs to help us to continue to grow our engagement with the community. Read about our pipeline programs here 

The 2021 Virtual Running of the NSU MD 5K Dash for Diversity will take place from Saturday, September 25th – Sunday, October 3rd and can be run at the time and location that works best for you. It takes three simple steps:

You can participate by yourself, with your friends, family, employer or community organization using appropriate social distancing and your community guidelines. Everyone is welcome to participate!!!!! Awards will be given to the top three female, male, and non-binary finishers in a student and non-student category. Amazon gift cards will be awarded in the amount of $50 for first place, $30 for second place, and $20 for third place.
