Dunes Dash 5K

September 28, 2019

Our Founder, Dorothy Buell, was surrounded by the beauty of the Indiana dunes at her home in Ogden Dunes. It was there that she gathered a group of fearless women to embark on a great challenge—to save the Indiana dunes from rapid development. In celebration of our founder, we will take to the streets, trails, and beaches of her Ogden Dunes home for our second annual Dunes Dash – a 5K for a Cause. Runners both novice and avid can join in on this fun 5k race. If you’re looking to run a different kind of race all while supporting a good cause, look no further. Join us Sept. 28th! and be a #BuellBeliever!
