UMass 5K Dash & Dine

Join campus and community members for the eighth annual 5K Dash and Dine, hosted by UMass Dining. Open to the campus community and the general public, the run/walk is held to raise funds for our neighbors in need at the Amherst Survival Center (ASC).

“The ASC provides a welcoming community where families and individuals who are struggling to make ends meet can come for food, clothing, health care and for companionship and relief from isolation. People are here to share their material resources, information, concerns, and frustrations. No one is turned away." 

UMass Dining has raised over $32,000 for the Survival Center over the course of the last few years thanks to your help, and our goal is to raise more than $8,000 this year. Register today and help UMass Dining and the ASC reach our goal to help our neighbors in need.

Don’t forget to check out our “Fun Run” that will be happening at 10 a.m. in Southwest Residential Area for children 8 years and younger. Stay tuned for more updates.

Register online or at any of the four dining commons/retail locations on the UMass campus. Online registration ends on Thursday April 6. Walk-ups welcome on Saturday, April 8.
