"Dash For Dowd" - 5K Race and Kids Fun Run
Please mark Saturday, September 8, 2018 on your calendars now for the “Dash For Dowd”, a 5k race to raise money and awareness for ARVD research. The event will take place at Holmdel High School Roggy Field and include the 5k, as well as a kid’s fun run, so plan on bringing the family.
The race is named in honor of Holmdel student Jack Dowd who died suddenly from ARVD on September 17, 2017 while playing lacrosse. This genetic ailment is a leading cause of sudden death among young athletes, but it can affect people of all ages and all activity levels.
All proceeds from the race will be donated to Johns Hopkins Hospital. At the Johns Hopkins Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (Cardiomyopathy) Program, they are committed to finding a cure for ARVD (ARVC). They help patients and their families with screening, education and advanced medical and surgical treatments.
The 5k Race is $25.00 and is held at 11:30AM to 12:30PM Registration Ends September 1st and you can signup https://runsignup.com/Race/NJ/Holmdel/DashforDowd5k
