Adventure Dash

Adventure Dash Fun Run is a high-energy fundraiser for our school. The run is a fun-filled, age appropriate obstacle course based run. The entire event takes place over 10 days and breaks down into 3 major components: 1) Rally Day 2) Daily Health & Fitness Breakouts 3) Dash Day.

Every student participates during the week and everyone gets to run on Dash Day!


The purpose of this event is to raise money for a rock wall in our gym, water bottle fill station near the gym, and for academies. More information will be coming home in this week's Tuesday Folder.
