Join us on September 3, 2023 at Quiet Waters Park for a fun family event, the 2nd Annual Dino Dash 5K Run/Walk benefiting the 4 Families Foundation.  The 2nd Annual Dino Dash 5K is a chipped timed event with awards provided to the top 3 (male and female) overall and age groups.  All participants will receive an awesome race package including the personalized race bib with participants name printed and RFID timing chip, Dino Dash 5K shirt, and beautiful finisher medal.  We will have activities at the event for all families to enjoy.

The Dino Dash 5K was created for Rocco Passaro.  Rocco was diagnosed with leukemia on June 30th, 2021. We immediately started treatment at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital on July 1st where Rocco was given a port, bone marrow biopsy, and his first Intrathecal chemo treatment. After a 7 day hospital stay we were able to come home and continue weekly treatments. Rocco continues to improve, with help from the community.  While we have always done our best to pay it forward, anytime we’re in the hospital we would love to be able to bless many more families. The Dino Dash 5k will allow us to raise awareness and funds for the families of pediatric cancer. Being able to bless families with meals and basic necessities will allow us to relive some major stressors that come with every hospital stay.
