There’s Still Time to Sign up for the Superhero Dash!

Posted on May 17, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Last June, HandsOn Willamette hosted our inaugural Super Hero Dash. It was a fantastic opportunity for our supporters to come together (in costume) to make our community stronger…and have a blast while doing it! This year’s event is complete with a 10k for runners only, a 5k run/walk and a 1k for kids 10 and younger.  Join us for a day of fun to support HandsOn and its 400 partner organizations who utilize volunteers. 

As we gear up for our 2nd annual Dash, we want to make sure that you will be a part of it. It’s really simple and easy to participate:


1. Go to and register today! You can also register in person at Gallagher’s Fitness.  It’s $25 for adults / $10 for kids before the Dash, and $35 for adults / $15 for kids to register at the event.


2. Share that you’re attending on Facebook, Twitter and to your friends in an email, encouraging them to register too. 


3. Figure out which hero you’re going to dress like! Come as Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash Gordon, Captain America, Buffy, whoever you want or create your own alter ego. Remember, this is the best part of the Dash!  You may even win a prize!


And be sure to invite your friends and tell them which Superhero you’re dressing as!


This year HandsOn teamed up with Girls on the Run.  Girls on the Run is a local organization that encourages healthy habits in young girls through mentorship and running.  You can join their efforts by signing up to be a running buddy with a girl in the program.  We also have a variety of other volunteer needs at the event.  Sign up at 


We hope to see you and Superhero alter ego at the Dash on June 1. Your support helps HandsOn Willamette continue to mobilize volunteers to do good in our community.
