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 students. This year, the UW Bothell Alumni Council has again 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.
