The Dallas Academy community came together on Saturday, November 5th for the 8th annual Dallas Academy DAwg Run. The family-friendly day included a 5K race, 1 mile fun run, a pet costume contest, games, and a bounce house. All of the proceeds from the day will benefit the students of Dallas Academy through scholarships and student services.
The day was full of activities including a 5K race timed by Run On! Trip Winans took home the top prize as the 5K overall winner with a race time of 19:04.3. Haley Ephraim was the top 5K female finisher with a time of 27:05.1. The 1 mile fun run was timed for Dallas Academy students. Fifth grader Hudson Morris came in first place with a race time of 6:44. Seventh grader Jude Blair came in second place with a time of 7:22. Sixth graders Jack Conrad and Lucas Gregory tied for third place with times of 7:23.
Dallas Academy is grateful the dozens of sponsors, businesses, and individual supports of the event for their generous donations and help in making the event a huge success. An especially big thank you to all of our outstanding parent and faculty volunteers who helped make the day fun for all.
Dallas Academy students and families enjoyed a morning of fun surrounded by family and friends. Race participants left the event with medals, tee shirts, prizes, and big smiles on their faces. Four legged friends were not forgotten; two dogs went home with prizes for the pet costume contest. Members of the Dallas Academy community enjoyed the DAwg Run so much that they are already busy planning next year’s event!
