She has helped support activities put on by Compassionate Friends, a support group for parents who have lost children and she has also mentored other parents. This June she helped organize a 5k memory run put on by Canary Garden a center for grieving children and parents. For the last 4 years Dawn has organized the Patia Lynn Christensen 5k in honor of her deceased daughter. Each year the money raised by this event goes to a different charity. Last year a 10k trail run was added. These two races are held in conjunction with Eureka UT town days in August.
