Make It Your Business! - Participating in the Dash is a great way to conduct Team Building, Marketing, and Community Outreach while encouraging Employee Wellness.

Sponsorship comes with complementary run entries. Invite your clients, employee, friends and family to run/walk and give them a reason to get in shape, a public goal to work towards and a celebration of their achievement. Along the way, your employees will enjoy the camaraderie that comes from working towards and achieving a common goal and helping people living with diabetes in our community. With your logo on their shirts and photos and video documenting your participation, you will showcase your company and your support of the community. And, best of all, participation is easy and turnkey.
