Join Save the Dunes for our Inaugural Dunes Dash - A 5K for a Cause!

Give Me the Deets!

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. On June 30, in celebration of our founder, we will take to the streets, trails, and beaches of her Ogden Dunes home for our inaugural Dunes Dash - a 5K for a Cause. Runners both novice and avid can join in on this hilly, fun 5k race that takes you on multiple terrains, and during a portion of the race, a partial run along Lake Michigan. If you're looking to run a different kind of race all while supporting a good cause, look no further. Join us for our Dunes Dash in June! Are you a #BuellBeliever?
