On Sunday October 29, 2017 at 9 am, Central Oregon Running Klub (CORK) will be hosting a family friendly, fun 5K benefiting Younity, in the heart of beautiful Central Oregon.  The Monster Dash 5K run/walk takes place in the crisp temperatures of an October morning, allowing participants of all ages and abilities to enjoy this festive, fun fall event.


Not to be left out of the fun, we offer our youngest participants the Little Monster Mile run.


These runs vary in distance by age, and start at about 10 am near the Monster Dash finish area.


Runners and walkers will be treated to great courses, tasty treats, and a lively post-race atmosphere.  The Monster Dash will start and finish at the Athletic Club of Bend, running down along the Deschutes River and through a few of our beautiful parks and part of the Old Mill District along the way.


100% of the proceeds of the events will benefit Younity and the programs and workshops that provide anti-bullying and suicide prevention support for Central Oregon youth..

Meet the People Behind It All

Here are the dedicated people that serve on Younity's Board:



Younity believes that the power of bringing people together is the most effective way to recognize, respond to and reduce bullying in our communities.  We fund, support and conduct workshops that teach people how to effectively respond to bullying in its many forms, help them discover their own self-power, become more aware of their actions, and develop more compassion in the way they treat others.

For millions ofᅠyoung people, bullying, violence, and other forms of oppression are a part of a typical school day. Many students are afraid to walk down the halls for fear of being teased or humiliated. Others feel so alone and frightened that they cannot even pay attention in their classes.

Younity is the vehicle for bringing bully-prevention programs and workshops to Central Oregon schools, providing administrative support and funding to make the programs a reality.  Younity’s vision is to bring these and other youth-centric program to Central Oregon and beyond.

To date, Younity has directly impacted over 7800 teens and 2300 adult volunteers in 81 programs and workshops in 20 middle and high schools in Central Oregon since January 2009.
