Double Helix Dash 5K and 1-mile returns April 7

Lace-up your sneakers and join the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology at the Double Helix Dash to raise funds and awareness for childhood genetic disorder research at the Institute. HudsonAlpha will host the ninth annual Double Helix Dash 5K and one-mile fun run the afternoon of Tuesday, April 7 at McMillian Park on HudsonAlpha’s campus. The race winds through the double helix path which was built to mimic the structure of DNA.

HudsonAlpha’s undiagnosed childhood genomics research effort is changing lives. Violet Monson is the 2020 Double Helix Dash Childhood Champion. Violet suffers from Rett syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Violet is just one example of how HudsonAlpha’s work is not only providing answers but also delivering hope and peace of mind. 

Presented in collaboration with the Huntsville Track Club, the Double Helix Dash begins at 5:30 p.m. and will start and finish on Genome Way. Immediately following will be the one-mile fun run. The Dash is open to everyone from serious runners to those who just want to cheer and watch the race on Explorer Boulevard. Please show your support for HudsonAlpha’s childhood genetics disorders programs.
