1) Fundraising
The PTA is raising funds to beautify our school grounds, support our amazing teachers, and sponsor fun community events (like the Dash!).  Fundraising is not required to run the race, but there are prizes and a raffle for AirPods for any Drew student who participates. Sign up to fundraise here:

2) Volunteers Needed!
To make this event a success, we need volunteers, especially along the race route to keep our runners safe!  Please consider signing up for a slot here:


Parking at the race site is limited, so we highly encourage biking / walking / carpooling to Drew.  
Limited parking is available at the Drew School car lot.  If you plan to drive, please arrive by 8:45am in order to access the Drew parking lot.  Please DO NOT park in the bus lanes at Drew OR in the parking spaces near the tennis courts, as those areas will be used for Drew Day for the food truck and bloodmobile.

Race Start Time
IMPORTANT: The Race will begin PROMPTLY at 9:00am.  If you arrive after 9am, a parent/guardian may need to run with you as we cannot guarantee race course volunteers.  Additionally, NO runners will be allowed to start the race after 9:15am.  Please plan to arrive no later than 8:45am!  Also, top finishers are determined by order across the finish line, so be on time so you can start with the pack!
