About This Activity

Be a part of a cause that works to support surrounding communities! Have fun, challenge yourself and help raise funds for park concessions/pavilion at McNeil Park (Home of the Matt Lee Classic) by joining family and friends in a run/walk through the "Old Village" of downtown Dayton.  The 2014 Matt Lee Classic is also proud to support the Knisely family and their daughter Sicily's (5) fight against Burkitt's Lymphoma.

This year, due to efforts of the Matt Lee Community Foundation and its supporters, we will be holding a Grand Opening Ceremony for the beautiful new ALL-INCLUSIVE playground following the race!  Race participants in years past have made this project happen, so we hope to see you all there! Stick around for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place and door prizes, and watch children experience the fun of the new playground!
