Dashan J. Briggs Memorial Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2021 by his spouse and family. Technical Sergeant Dashan Briggs made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the 106th NYS Air National Guard unit as a Special Missions Aviator in Western Iraq on March 15, 2018 when his HH-60 Pavehawk helicopter crashed. The foundation was created to honor his legacy by supporting future generations and teaching them to succeed through perseverance, hard work, and dedication- all traits he embodied.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Dashan J. Briggs Memorial Foundation that awards Scholarships to students in Riverhead and Comsewogue High School, and to future workshops and seminars to help teach our youth important life skills that they do not necessarily learn in school such as CPR/AED training, car maintenance, finances, and basic cooking classes, etc.
Participant's will receive a custom race t-shirt made of super soft ring spun cotton.
Awards will be given to the top male and female overall, plus the top 3 finishers in 10 year age groups
