Declan's Dash

Declan's Dash

The Fourth Annual Declan’s Dash and 1/2 mile Fun Run presented by Trone Brand Energy™ will take place on May 10th at Harmon Park in Kernersville, North Carolina. This family orientated, stroller-friendly race features an out and back course that starts and ends at Declan’s Playground at Harmon Park. Great food, prizes and fun will be available for participants of all ages. 
 
The foundation was started in memory of Declan Nicholas Donoghue, who passed away on September 2, 2010 at the age of two of a rare immune genetic disorder. The foundation’s mission is to celebrate the memory and spirit of Declan, by funding and creating places for children to play. The goal of this year’s race is to raise funds for a new playground in Greensboro for installation in September 2014. To date, the Declan Donoghue Foundation has built two commercial playgrounds in the Triad at Harmon Park in 2011 and Ivy M Redmon Sports Complex in 2013. 
 
Timing for the event is being provided by Precision Timing Systems, and awards will be given in the 5K for the top three overall male and female runners and the top three runners for nine designated age groups. Last year more than $1,200 in prizes was awarded to the top finishers and for door prizes.
