Dalton’s Dash 5k – May 21st
Thank you for all of your support at both the dodgeball tournament and my run from CHKD to home on Dalton’s birthday.
We had a blast at the dodgeball tournament and thoroughly enjoyed seeing a full crowd at the Virginia Beach Fieldhouse having a great time while raising money for Ewing Sarcoma research. The tournament ran smoothly thanks to all of our volunteers. A huge thank you to Jen and Kelly for organizing such a great event. We hope to make this an annual event so you’ve got eleven months to practice before our next tournament.
A big thank you to everyone who donated in honor of Dalton on my 22-mile run from CHKD to home and for those of you who met me along the way or celebrated with us as we walked the last mile home. We received donations from all fifty states and fifteen countries and even made the news. After all the donations were tallied, we raised over $19,000 that’s all going to research. I’ll run 22 miles for 19K anytime.
Speaking of running, our next event just opened for registration today. On Saturday, May 21st D-Feet Cancer will be hosting the first ever Dalton’s Dash 5K. You can go to the following website for all of the details. The 5K will be low key so feel free to run or walk. We also have a 100-yard dash for the little ones (or if Usain Bolt shows up) and a virtual option for our many non-local Team Dalton crew. If running or walking isn’t your thing, we also need a bunch of volunteers. Both participants and volunteers can sign up at the link below.
This 5K race is one of three major fundraising efforts D-Feet Cancer plans to undertake in 2022. We’ll have a golf tournament on Friday October 14th and are also planning an oyster roast in November. D-Feet Cancer is looking for annual sponsors to partner with. In return for helping us raise money for Ewing Sarcoma research, we will recognize and market our partner businesses at all three of our events and on social media throughout the year. If you know of a business that might be interested in partnering with us and becoming a D-Feet Cancer sponsor, please let me know. We would love to talk to them. Additionally, as part of each event, we will be holding silent auctions and/or raffles. If the timing isn’t right for a sponsorship, a donation of a silent auction or raffle item or service would be much appreciated. Just send an email to info@DFeetCancer.org with any questions and/or requests.
Thank you for helping us help kids like Dalton and D-Feet Cancer. #TeamDalton rocks!
