I am so excited for my fourth Dash for Donation July 14! It’s amazing to see so many people in downtown Columbus supporting and organ and tissue donation – you might even say it’s a “swarm” of support.
In addition to seeing so many people who have been touched by donation, I always look forward to the Kids and Mascots Dash. Many of my mascot friends join me to run down Nationwide Boulevard with local kids. I try to start my training early (thanks to advice from my buddy Brutus Buckeye) and this year I think I’ll be ready.
So far, I have 15 of my friends joining me:
- Binny, Rumpke
- Cardy, Otterbein University
- Cheerful, AmeriCheer
- Chilly Bear, The Chiller Ice Rinks
- Clawdette, Columbus State Community College
- CoCo, CoCo Key Water Resort
- Cookie and Brownie, Cheryl’s
- Cowman, The Ohio State Fair
- Dr. Cleo, Molina Health Care
- Pepe, Kroger
- Pickle, Rusty Bucket
- RaTio, COSI
- Splasher, Big Splash
- Menchie, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt
This year’s race should be awesome and I hope you’ll join us! If you want to register your child for the Kids and Mascots Dash, or sign up for our 5K or 1K, visit our race website. To register your mascot for the race, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to see you July 14!
Buzz and Kisses,
