Diabetes Dash 5K Run/Walk & Food Drive

Sunday August 2nd, 2020

Westerville, OH

Official Website


Join us this August for the 2nd Annual Diabetes Dash 5K Run/Walk & new this year - Food Drive!

Diabetes Dash 5K came to be a short time after Ryan Washburn was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in July 2018. After diagnosis, Ryan became very interested in the work of JDRF and knew he wanted to do his part in spreading awareness, give hope to those dealing with the disease and to fight for a cure. Not only is our mission to help fund the research efforts to someday find a cure, we also want to educate the community about Type 1 Diabetes. All race proceeds will be donated to JDRF - Central Ohio Chapter. 

NEW THIS YEAR, Ryan has decided to organize a Food Drive in addition to planning all race details. Ryan is a Life Scout with Westerville Troop 64 and is planning both events as his Eagle Project. We invite participants and spectators to bring non-perishable food items on race day. Collected food items will be donated locally to the food pantry at the Westerville Area Resource Ministry (W.A.R.M.).
