Once again Cloud Communications Group (CCG) is pleased to support the 9th annual “Good Space Dash for the Beads” Fun-Run/Walk and Mardi Gras Festival scheduled for Saturday, February 10, 2108 benefiting Oak Cliff, TX area schools. The Dash for the Beads is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2009 to raise money for Oak Cliff organizations that help schools create environments supportive of students’ efforts to eat healthy and be active. All proceeds are donated through grants to area schools to establish programs to encourage kids to stay in motion and learn about and practice behavior that leads to a healthy lifestyle.
Keeping with our corporate values, this is the fifth year CCG has sponsored the event and participated in the DASH event committee supporting operations and information technology needs for the organization.
This year, the event will once again include a 5K and 10K chip-timed races along with the Fun-Run 1-mile walk, a costume contest, family and pet-friendly Mardi Gras Festival, and a Beer Garden with live music at Kidd Springs Park in North Oak Cliff to “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (Let the good times roll). The event is expected to draw more than 2,200 attendees, and hopes to raise more than $40,000 to support the ongoing grant program for area schools. Past events have resulted in enough funds to support more than $100,000 in grants over the past few years.
Prizes will be awarded for the best-dressed walker, runner, pet , and an envious trophy for the winner of the chip-timed 10k and 5K events. Medals will be presented to the top three males and top three females in each of the a wide range of ages. All North Texas residents are encouraged to walk, run and join the party!
Registration is OPEN now for the 10K, 5K and 1 mile walk. Available spectator packages include food and beverage, and a DASH t-shirt. Cash donations will be accepted, as well as, registration discounts are available to large groups, school children and educators.
