This past October 7th, we were refreshed with a beautiful morning at Prairie Park Fishery. The Fall weather was crisp and welcoming for Dady Dashers as they prepared for our 11th annual 5K/10K to benefit Willis Dady Homeless Services. We are happy to report this year's event was a success. We raised over $18,000 for programs that support our clients in the community.
Over 60 participants walked, or ran; and competed while taking in the lush greenery and the early fall colors. Check out the results for the 5k run, 10k run, or 5k walk races by age category and gender below!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the events and those who came out to cheer or volunteer. Not only is the Dady Dash important to us for fundraising, but we appreciate the opportunity to connect, in a meaningful way, with community members for family-friendly fun.
The work of Willis Dady depends on our partnerships with the community. It is because of you that we are able to continue providing assistance to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Linn County.
Thank you to our sponsors!
We can't thank our sponsors enough for supporting Willis Dady's 11th Annual Dady Dash. Not only would this event not have been possible, but the everyday operations of our agency depend on the financial support of community organizations.
