The Good Space Dash for the Beads is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that donates its proceeds to local area schools to help promote healthy eating and physical activity for our grade school children. Area schools will be eligible to apply for grants to encourage kids to stay in motion and learn about and practice behavior that leads to a healthy lifestyle.
The Good Space Dash for the Beads is an annual 5k run and 1 mile walk that coincides with Mardi Gras so come out and Laissez les bons temps rouler! (To any Mardi Gras rookies that is Cajun for “Let the good times roll”). New for 2017 we are adding a chip-timed 10k event!
Each year we award prizes for the best-dressed walker, runner, pet (that’s right, pet) and an envious trophy for the winner of the chip-timed 10k and 5K events! Medals will be presented to the top three males and top three females in each of the following age groups- 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79 and 80+. Check out our Registration page for specifics but we do have discounts through December 31st at midnight so register early! Come help us celebrate a race that has become a neighborhood tradition, benefiting neighborhood schools.
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. Please review our Mission Statement below. Monetary donations from those not able to participate are welcome and can be processed through our website.
