4th Annual Dash for the Beads


Hewitt & Habgood and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates are proud to announce their  sponsorships for the 4th Annual Dash for the Beads that will be giving its proceeds to “Finding Inspired Dog Owners”, or FIDO Oak Cliff, a group of committed volunteers who will create Oak Cliff’s first dog park. Sign up for the February 9th race here; registration ends on January 30th.

The DASH initiative was founded in 2009 by “Cliff Dwellers” Chad West and David Sassano as a way to raise money for Oak Cliff organizations.

“We’re honored to once again contribute the Dash for the Beads’ proceeds to FIDO, in hopes that they bring a dog park to OC real soon! The DASH is always a lot of fun for the entire family and we welcome the community to come out and run, walk, hang out in the kid’s area, or just visit the heated, Rahr beer tent!” said Chad A. West.

“This is, I believe, the only costumed run in Dallas,” David Sassano said, “it turned into more of an event this year and we’re hoping to raise over $10,000.”

The certified 5K route in North Oak Cliff borders West Greenbriar Lane, Junior Drive, Combs Creek Trail, Eastus Drive and Cedar Hill Avenue. The route is one of the most challenging 5Ks in Dallas due to the hills of Kessler Park. Prizes will be awarded for the best-dressed walkers and runners for the winners of the chip-timed 5K run! Registration is $25 thru Jan. 30 and $30 thru Feb. 7 for the 5K run, $20 for the one-mile walk and $15 for children. Monetary donations from those not able to participate will also be accepted

Participation is preferred, donations are welcome, and additional information is available at www.dashforthebeads.org.
