Gotta Run Squad Events

"It is in the toughest of times, we truly find ourselves. Be well!"
- Dawn Zavalishin, Founder and Executive Director

At Bottoms Up Organization, we don't just walk the walk. Our Executive Director shared her "Gotta Run" Squad moment a few years ago. 

"My Gotta Run Squad moment was as a freshman in high school. It was a 45 minute bus ride one way. I had to walk home. It took about 10 minutes. It was a DAILY race. I fashioned myself to an elite sprinter. Would I make it home or have an accident? 9 out of 10 times, I lost the race. "Gotta Run" is all about that uncontrollable need to find the bathroom ASAP! Our Gotta Run squad is a way to remind ourselves, you are not alone. We GET it and we are here to help. Poop Happens!"
