Description

GCXC Race Timing is proud to present The March Mad Dash.  This race, now in it's 11th year, is a 5K, 5 Mile and 10 Mile running race/fun walk on Saturday, March 27th at the North Park Boat House and lake area in Allison Park, PA (a northern suburb of Pittsburgh).

This event supports teens helping others through service projects on a local and national level.

Middle school youth volunteer during the summer with The Pittsburgh Project, completing home repairs for those in need.

Senior high teens are often found repairing damages from natural disasters in places such as Louisiana, New Jersey and Colorado.

Adult mentors guide students in becoming mature adults with a heart for service as they teach practical repair and building skills.
