October is Dyslexia Awareness Month
The 2021 Dyslexia Dash is now on course to be the largest Dash event ever! We set an internal goal of 1600, and as of this moment, we are at 1,960 registrants. What will our final number be?

Join us for the 2021 Dyslexia Dash 5K in-person on October 16 or virtually anytime between now and October 16. ONLINE REGISTRATION ENDS on Wednesday, October 13.
