DeSoto County Dream Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which focuses on Title 1 school students & their families by providing them with food, clothing, quality healthcare and educational assistance. The DeSoto County Dream Center's goal in Northwest Mississippi is to eliminate barriers that keep people from reaching their full potential. By building relationships within the community, the Dream Center connects people, programs and services. The Dream Center offers a consistent and reliable hand-up, not just a hand out by coordinating the basic needs of families with businesses, other non-profits and individuals. 

For the 2023 race, there are both in-person and virtual options available.

The virtual race option is for those who are not able to participate in person. Separate results will be provided for virtual runners. Please note, due to the nature of virtual results being reliant on dependable cell service and honesty, there will be no awards for Virtual participants. Results are for recognition only. You can download the RaceJoy App (click here) to automatically upload your results when you finish the distance or you can manually post your results on our site.  Be sure to share photos of your course, and running companions; two and four legs. See "How to upload your photos" click here. Please see our "Virtual FAQ" click here.
