Mad Dash 5K for Music Education

The Mad Dash 5K was started to support and promote a healthy lifestyle and fitness in our nation’s youth, with particular focus toward those young people participating in high school marching bands, color guards, and drum lines. Proceeds raised through the Mad Dash 5K will be used to advance health & wellness initiatives in the marching arts through practice and a series of educational clinics.
