2018 Dolphin Dash on November 14

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: COLLEGE PARK DOLPHIN DASH

November 14, 2018!!

The Dolphin Dash is College Park’s largest fundraiser where families, friends and neighbors pledge money to support the students as they jog or walk in the Dolphin Dash, which takes place during your child’s regular school day. Donations will be used for great programs like Science and Art, Reading Counts and Lunch Activities.

We are excited to announce again that all College Park Students will be receiving a Dolphin Dash T-Shirt!

Our goal is to raise at least $25,000 and each child to raise at least $30

How does it work? Donations can be made by clicking on the link below.

  1. Click the link here to register each child. You must add each child separately.
  2. Name = Enter Child’s First and Last Name.
  3. Email = Enter Email Address.
  4. Group = Select Teacher’s Last Name. This is important so we can determine the top class, etc.
