2022 Beachside Dash a success

Congratulations to the over 500 participants who took part in the 2022 Beachside Dash, running or walking 10km5km and 2km, on Sunday, 11 September at Peter Depena Reserve at Dolls Point Beach. It was a cool morning, but we all soon warmed up with all the beachside cheer.

We raised over $76,000 from this year’s Dash!

Thank you to all our participants, volunteers, ambassadors and sponsors for supporting us and making the event such a great success.

We hope you loved the Dash as much as we did!
