Deafinitely Not Different 5k and Fun Run is a run/walk that benefits students who attend Plano Regional Day School Program for the Deaf. 

Your participation could...

  • help feed a family so that they can attend an Information Fair to learn more about deafness and resources,
  • fund a field trip for our preschoolers to pick up new vocabulary from real life experiences,
  • provide entry into competitions with kids across the country for our teens,
  • buy books for our middle schoolers to use for Battle of the Books,
  • and provide extra learning materials for our students and families to use.

These activities are spread out throughout the year.  Regardless of when they take place, YOU get to help us create memories that last a lifetime! 

Plano Regional Day School Program for the Deaf provides services for over 400 families of Deaf and Hard of Hearing students in Collin County, Richardson, and Coppell.   Help us provide language rich opportunities to our babies all the way up to graduating Seniors! 

A shirt is included with registration!  

Thank you for supporting us year after year!

Families and Staff receive a discount. Contact us for the coupon code!  :)

Our goal is to get back to the amazing event we had before COVID.  IF we get enough runners, and IF medals aren't back ordered, we will have them!

Packet Pick Up will happen the evening of March 23 and 24.  Enter the west side of Vines HS from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm.

Where is the Fun Run?

The Fun Run happens on the track just South of the campus.  We'll have it marked.

Can I register the day of the event?

Can my company sponsor your event?

Will there be things for kids to do?

Of course!!  In previous years, we have had big trucks, a helicopter landing, and a petting zoo.  This year will have some fun stuff too!

Do I have to run?

No way!  You can if you want though. :)
