About Dash

"I’m a 10-year old male golden retriever living in Redmond, Washington (just east of Seattle). Some people think I’m mixed with another breed because I'm a bit shorter and fluffier than many other Goldens. But I'm not a mix... I'm 100% Golden Retriever!
When I was 8 weeks old, I became the mascot for the Washington/Alaska Team in Training Triathlon Team. I’ve been the mascot now for over 10 years! I’ve supported my Team at many events and Team Dash continues to raise funds for blood cancer research and patient services/support. 
I became a viral sensation in September 2018 when I was spotted at a Seattle Mariners game holding a hot dog in my mouth. I now have over 36,000 Instagram followers (@Dash.Dog)!
I've been up and down the west coast and have followers all around the globe. Spreading happiness and laughter is my mission. By signing up for the Dash to Cure Cancer Virtual 5K, you’re going to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and me cure blood cancer!"


Life is Pawsitively Golden!

In addition to your virtual race entry and printable bib, all registered participants will receive this EXCLUSIVE Dash medal! Please note that medals will be shipped after the race has closed and no later than Aug 25th.


Add a Life is Golden Hat

Wouldn't it be fun to always see my smile?  Add on a Life is Golden trucker cap during the registration process and better yet, 100% of these hat sales will go to LLS!
