Dyslexia Dash

Dyslexia Dash starting line

Presented by the Georgia Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA-GA), the Dyslexia Dash is a 5K run/walk to raise money for important dyslexia resources, including scholarships to teachers and grants to institutions to train educators in structured literacy education. 

The Dyslexia Dash 2023 can be run as an in-person race or as a virtual race.   You choose whichever one works for you. 

The in-person races will be held on October 21, 2023, at Perimeter Mall, 4400 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA, 30346.  The race will begin in the parking lot near the Von Maur store. The Dyslexia Dash will include both a 5km run and 1 mile kids run for those with big hearts but little legs (children ten years of age and under). The 1 mile kids run begins at 8:00 am.  The 5km run begins at 8:30am. All participants will receive a t-shirt at the end of the race.  There will also be a kids play area, a disc jockey, an awards ceremony and sponsors tents to visit.

For those choosing the virtual race, participants will run their own course and can post their times.  As soon as you register you can run the race. The Dyslexia Dash website will be open to receiving posting of times on October 7, 2023 and will remain open until October 21, 2023. Participants will have the option to post their times via the Dyslexia Dash website, using text message or sending an email.  Virtual race participants will receive their race t-shirt through the mail during the week of October 23. 

We will share information on the 2023 Dash and how to join Team Schenck School as it becomes available. If you have questions, email dyslexiadash@schenck.org to reach our Dyslexia Dash Parent Co-Chairs.
