Cancellation of Dedmon Dash Fundraising Event

Dear Participants,

We want to express our sincerest apologies for the cancellation of the Dedmon Dash fundraising event that was scheduled to take place this Saturday at 10:00 am. We understand that many of you were looking forward to participating in the race, and we deeply regret any inconvenience that this may have caused.

We would like to assure you that all registration fees will be refunded in full, and you can expect to receive your refunds within the next week or so. We understand that this is not the outcome that any of us were hoping for, and we want to assure you that we explored all possible options before making the difficult decision to cancel the event.

Unfortunately, we did not receive as many participant sign ups as estimated to cover the cost of hosting the race. Our priority was to ensure that we could fundraise money for the program successfully, but with the low number of registrations, we would have ended up losing money instead of raising any funds.

We know that many of you had made preparations for the event, and we understand how disappointing this news is. We want to apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment that this may have caused, and we hope that you will continue to support our cause in the future.

Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope to organize more successful events for you to be involved in  for the future.

The Radford University Track & Field & Cross Country Programs thank you for your understanding.
