Donkey Dash 2024

Hey Donkey Dashers and Awesome Supporters,

Wow, what a day! We’re still buzzing (or hee-hawing) from the incredible turnout at the first (of many) Latham Centers Donkey Dash 5K, and we just had to share the highlights with you all.

Event Recap:

  • Who Showed Up: A whopping 208 of you registered to run, walk, or just cheer everyone on. Talk about a party!
  • New Friends: Over 100 new members joined the greater Latham community. Welcome to the family!
  • SWAG: If you left without picking up your SWAG bag as a race registrant, let Jackie or Erica know!

Race Results and Snaps:

  • Runners, You Rock: Big shout out to everyone who hit the pavement! Check out your results at iResultsLive. They might also be chilling in your inbox.
  • Caught on Camera: Relive the magic and see all the smiles (and maybe some exhaustion) in our photo gallery at Fleeting Moments.

Special Shout Outs:

  • Volunteers: You are the real MVPs. Thanks for keeping everything running smoothly and for just being awesome.
  • Fruit Heroes: We donated the extra fruit to the Family Table Collaborative. Nothing goes to waste when we’re around!
  • Mainsail: Go-to event planning team of Jen & Jenn – can’t beat them.

Can’t wait to see you at the next one!
