The Story

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Sep 04, 2018

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Sep 04, 2018

Join the Global Genes Denim Dash 5K for Rare Disease

 

Who makes the biggest impact for the rare disease community? You do! Now in its 4th year, Global Genes’ Denim Dash 5K for Rare Disease (Denim Dash) inspires global supporters of all ages to bike, roll, swim, run, or walk 3.1 miles to raise awareness and support for rare disease.

 

The 2018 Denim Dash is a virtual race taking place from July 4th - September 3, 2018, giving you the the flexibility to participate wherever and whenever you like. Are you planning a vacation? Great, make the Denim Dash part of your trip. Can’t complete the 3.1 miles at one time? No problem - spread it out. There are so many ways you can join in the fun and support rare disease.

 

Together We Make a Difference

All funds raised through from the 2018 Denim Dash directly support Global Genes’ vital work to connect, empower and inspire rare disease patients and advocates around the globe.

 

Start Your Denim Dash

·         Individuals* - Register as an individual, create your fundraising page and ask your family and friends support your dash.

·         Team*: Join or create a team of Dashers. The best thing about a virtual dash is that the team members don’t have to live in the same place or participate at the same time.

 

RARE Foundation Alliance Members 

We are proud to partner with our 501(c)3 RARE Foundation Alliance Members** for this year’s Denim Dash. Alliance Members can fundraise to help support Global Genes as well as their own non-profit. The Denim Dash funding will be split 50/50, after an initial $1,000 raised by your Foundation. This allows you the opportunity to support Global Genes and the RARE Foundation Alliance Team of your choosing at the same time.

This year Global Genes will recognize the top three RARE Foundation Alliance Dash Teams that raises the most funding at the International Rare Disease Patient Summit. We will have a special prize for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams.

*Must be a Foundation Alliance member to qualify. Registration fees cover cost of goods. The split 50/50 monies are above and beyond the $35 registration costs and after your Foundation raises $1,000.*

*Each registered Dasher must meet or exceed the minimum fundraising amount of $250, this does not include the registration fee.*
