Global Genes, a leading rare disease patient advocacy organization, is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Virtual Denim Dash 5k for rare disease Wednesday July 4 – Monday, September 3, 2018. The virtual Denim Dash 5k offers participants across the globe the flexibility to run, roll, jog, walk, bike or even swim anywhere at any time in support of patients, families and friends of the rare disease community.

Global Genes developed the Denim Dash 5k to offer rare disease supports from around the world the opportunity to come together and participate in one unifying event. Last year's Denim Dash 5k raised over $29,000 for rare diseases across 7 countries and 46 states. With a goal of $50,000 this year, Denim dDash proceeds will go directly to the Global Genes RARE Patient Impact Grant – providing support for innovative projects in the rare disease community.

All Demin Dash participants are encouraged to share race plans and progress with other event participants on social media platforms and active lifestyle applications. By using the hashtag #DenimDash18, rare disease advocates will be able to stay in touch with Denim Dash participants across the globe.

Supporters in Souther California are encouraged to participate in the local Global Genes Denim Dash 5k at the non-profit organization headquarters in Aliso Viejo on Thursday, August 23 from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. The 3-mile course will begin and end at the Global Genes headquarters with a post racefinish-line party including refreshments and food trucks.

Dashers can participate as an individual, maximize their fundraising impact by forming a team or having friends and family sponsor their run. Registration is now open.
