Welcome to the Double Helix Dash
Supporting the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology
The Double Helix Dash 5K and 1-mile fun run is one of the most unique races in North Alabama. It begins and ends on Genome Way in front of HudsonAlpha and winds through McMillian Park’s distinctive double helix path. Proceeds from the Double Helix Dash support HudsonAlpha’s work with rare and undiagnosed genetic disorders, which affect some 25 million children and adults across the country.

Proceeds from the Double Helix Dash support HudsonAlpha’s work with rare and undiagnosed genetic disorders, which affect some 25 million children and adults across the country. Through the Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) program and the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine, HudsonAlpha is providing life-changing and life-saving answers to families struggling with rare and undiagnosed diseases. Using our cutting-edge sequencing technology, HudsonAlpha scientists have already provided much-needed diagnoses for children in our community.
This effort is changing lives across North Alabama. Jessi Watts, a CSER patient from Decatur, is the 2018 Double Helix Dash Childhood Champion. She was diagnosed as autistic in 2005, but HudsonAlpha’s team discovered the genetic traits for Rett syndrome in February 2014. Jessi is just one example of how HudsonAlpha’s work is not only providing answers, but also delivering hope and peace of mind.
