Dazzle Dash & Family Fun Day is a fun-filled community event in support of primary education at Media-Providence Friends School. Friends and families gather to walk or run miles through Rose Tree Park, enjoy food, music, entertainment, prizes, games and activities for children of all ages all while promoting mindful living. We have partnered with Bryn Mawr Racing Company, Healthy Kids Running Series, Rocky Run YMCA, Fair Trade Media and Transition Town Media to expand program awareness for all involved. This is a rain or shine event. Some activities outside of the run or walk that involve family fun day are weather permitting.
Sign up now to join in the fun! Race day registrations for signed up racers are between 7:30 - 8:30 am.
As an independent school since 1876, MPFS has the freedom to develop and employ programming that reflects the latest research about how children best learn, and to infuse it with values that teach our students what it means to be a part of a global community. This independence has an economic aspect as well: we are entirely self-funded. Our ability to provide the best experience for students has been due, largely, to the philanthropic contributions of our community. This tradition of giving has enabled the school to sustain its mission: providing a transformational education whose end product is critical thinkers who approach life with optimism, integrity, curiosity, and compassion. At MPFS this means Meaningful Learning for a Purposeful Life.

EDUCATION IS NOT A SPRINT, IT’S A MARATHON. Your commitment to go the distance for primary education helps MPFS sustain an environment where students have been able to grow, explore, and learn for 143 years. Your support is important because a child's first experiences at school set the tone for how they feel about learning for the rest of their lives.
GREAT THINGS TAKE YEARS TO BUILD. The educational experience in a child's formative years is vital. It is when children develop the habits of mind and body that they will carry with them throughout their lives. A pre-school, elementary, and middle school education needs to be more than just learning basic reading, writing, and math. It should also be about going the distance to feed and satisfy every student's curiosity, instilling a life-long love of learning, helping them find their passion, challenging them to think outside the box, and accomplishing things they don’t think are possible.
THERE IS NO IMPACT WITHOUT ACTION. Your participation in and gift towards the Dazzle Dash and Family Fun Day makes possible an education that provides the vital components of a child's development, all the while preparing them with critical thinking skills they need to thrive in an evolving world, and fostering the Friends values of respect and appreciation for other people and other points of view. Developing the agility to navigate inevitable roadblocks is part of the route. These periods won’t last forever but are essential in the process of continuous revelation. Truth keeps unfolding if we are open to new information.
GO THE DISTANCE. We expect our students to leave here as capable life-long learners prepared with the skills needed to succeed in whatever field they choose, and with a desire to make a difference in the world. I ask you to leap into action at the Dazzle Dash and fuel the support needed for a successful school year. We thank you in advance for your commitment, thoughtfulness, and generosity towards our students’ Meaningful Learning for a Purposeful Life.
