2011 DAwg Run a Success

2011 DAwg Run a Success
You could say that Dallas Academy has gone to the dogs.  The Dallas community came out in large numbers on Saturday, November 12th for the 3rd annual Dallas Academy DAwg Run. The event, which was held on campus and at White Rock Lake, featured a timed 5K race and 1 mile fun run and pet walk.  
Families and friends of the school along with community members, local runners, and pets all came out to enjoy the day’s festivities.  Families stayed after the race to partake in family friendly activities such as a bounce house, silly tattoos, bone toss, frisbee toss, face painting, as well as for the chance to win a variety of raffles and prizes.  Participants sported their DAwg Run tee shirts, designed by Dallas Academy parent, Jesse Diaz of iDiaz Multicultural Marketing.
Medals were awarded to the top two 5K finishers along with the winners of each age group division.  Ian King won the race for the men with a final time of 17:50.00.  Linda Kelly took home the top spot for the females with a time of 22:56.00.  Congratulations to all of the runners for their great efforts in the 5K run.
The 2011 DAwg Run raised over $27,000 and counting.  All proceeds from the run will go towards scholarship opportunities for deserving current and future Dallas Academy students. Capital One Bank served as the 2011 DAwg Run lead sponsor and provided a generous donation to the Dallas Academy scholarship fund.  Dallas Academy would also like to thank all of this year’s sponsors for providing both monetary and in-kind donations.
