The 2022 Dicken Dash happens on October 7.

The Dicken Dash has been our primary annual(ish) fundraiser for more than 10 years. Every fall our students train in gym class and through the Dicken Running Club to run laps to raise money for their school. Family and friends pledge the runners, and everyone celebrates the success of our fundraiser when it’s all over.
