The Dash for Donna is back on July 26, 2014! This 5K and One-Mile Fun Walk is wildly popular because of the unique course - the beautiful and hilly terrain at the zoo! The 5K competitors will have their time recorded via chip timers and awards will be given to the top three finishers in each category.

The One-Mile Fun Walk is something all ages and fitness levels will enjoy. (July 26th is Family Fun Day and is PACKED with special activities!)
Online registration is required to be guaranteed a t-shirt. Race Day registration increases the fee by $5.00 per participant and does NOT guarantee a t-shirt. (T-shirt size and availability not guaranteed for any registrations received after 7/16/14.)
Dash for Donna was started to honor the memory of Donna the Hippo, Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Gardens most famous resident. Donna delighted zoo visitors from 1956 until her passing in July 2012.

Thank you for supporting Dash for Donna. Pre-registrations available online only. All proceeds benefit the Evansville Zoological Society. All sales final. No refunds. T-shirt sizes subject to availability.
