The 1st annual Dazzle Dash Fun Run and 5K sponsored by the Center for Early Learning at Piqua Catholic took place Nov. 9 and was a huge success thanks to many committee members, volunteers and sponsors. The Dazzle Dash Fun Run was a race similar to a color run where volunteers throw colored powder on the participants for fun. More than 130 runners participated with many of our Center for Early Learning students taking part also. Each participant received a T-shirt with their registration fee. We had over 50 volunteers which included Boy Scout Troop 344, Lehman Catholic Cheerleading Squad, members of the Lehman Catholic Soccer team, the preschool parents and staff and many more. Refreshments were served at the post race awards ceremony. The top overall female runner was Alana O’Leary and the top overall male runner was Brian Guillozet.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for helping to make this event so successful:
