Join the MSW Student Association on Saturday, May 12 for our 6th year of supporting our local philanthropy, Dash-it for Baskets. Dash-it is a 5K race, a 5K walk or a 1 mile walk in support of our neighbors who live with a mental illness.

Since 2005, Open Baskets has partnered with Mental Health Resources, assembling winter holiday gift baskets for neighbors living with a mental illness.  For many, these baskets are the only gift they receive each year.  Each year, our MSW Student Association organizes students, faculty, staff, friends and family to join other volunteers for a morning of inspiration and volunteerism assembling these holiday baskets.  In addition to sponsorships & donations, Open Baskets raises money through its annual Dash-it-for-Baskets 5k (or 1 mile walk). Spread the word!


Bring your friends and family for a morning of inspiration and volunteerism.  Volunteers will assist with registration, water distribution, course signage set-up, and directing runners along the course route.  How many other opportunities will you get to direct traffic??

All programs offered by the University of St. Thomas shall be readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. For details, call (651) 962-6315.
