Join Huxley and WWU alums for the inaugural Huxley Goes the Distance for Racial Equality 5K/25K, bringing awareness to racial inequality while raising funds to support scholarships for WWU BIPOC Huxley students.

Participation is on your own time—go at your own pace, using whatever conveyance you prefer! You can even create a team (social distancing encouraged). Walk, roll, run, bike, swim, or prancercize!

At Western and Huxley, we acknowledge the conservation movement must diversify to become more inclusive and effective. Support for diversity is critical to broadening the impact of our Huxley students and, to that end, we created the Huxley Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Environmental Justice Fund to support members of these communities. Our goal is to endow this scholarship with $25,000 as our permanent commitment to elevate our BIPOC students’ visions and voices long-term mission.
