DASH FOR DETECTION 5K (June 2, 2018 - 9:00AM)
Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation and Lustgarten Foundation have joined forces to develop an early detection test, and ultimately, find a cure for pancreatic cancer. This event is a 5K certified, chip-timed Walk/Run starting and ending at Montrose Harbor. DASH for Detection is a family friendly event with plenty of activities, music, face painting,
a post-race Kid's Sprint, and even bagels and a food truck.
All DASH routes are wheelchair and stroller accessible. Sorry, no dogs allowed.
