Welcome to the Make a Difference Dash 5K!


Join us for this community 5K run/walk through the beautiful grounds of Keeneland Racecourse on Saturday, August 6, 2022 at 8:00 a.m.


Dr. Pearse Lyons, founder of Alltech, believed in living each day to the fullest, making a difference in the lives of others and leaving a legacy.   An avid runner, Dr. Lyons also never missed an opportunity to lace up his shoes and outpace his friends. The Make a Difference Dash combines running and philanthropy while celebrating a life well-lived.

Proceeds from the 5K will go to the Pearse Lyons ACE Foundation, which serves our philanthropic activities in Kentucky and around the world.

We are excited to invite the community to the Make a Difference Dash 5K as we celebrate coming together in person and making a difference, together!
