Vanderlyn PTO proudly hosts Ninth Annual VanderDash on Saturday, March 18, 2017!

It's that time of the year again when all of Vanderlyn comes together to VanderDash. New to Vanderlyn? Don't know about the VanderDash yet? The VanderDash is the signature event for Vanderlyn Elementary. The VanderDash is also the largest 5K / Family Fun Run in the Dunwoody area. We will be celebrating our ninth year of running (or walking) the VanderDash on March 18, 2017. Plan to join us as the Vanderlyn community comes together to celebrate our school. 
A portion of the proceeds from this year's VanderDash will go towards revamping and revitalizing our Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade playground. Support VanderDash and help improve the play space for our littlest Vikings.        

Race prices:

$20 per participant for the 5K, 1 Mile Fun Run or Both

$150 for a Family Sponsorship which includes four (4) complimentary race entries

 Register by Friday, March 3, 2017 to guarantee your race t-shirt.

Online registration closes on Friday, March 10, 2017.

Race Day registration available for $25 per participant, payable with cash or check only. 

Thank you for supporting VanderDash! With your help, we can continue to host Vanderlyn's signature community building event and support our school!


See you at the finish line!
