About This Activity

My grandma, who stood at under 5ft tall, LOVED her dobermans. LOVED. Before I was born, there was Tosca the doberman. And during my lifetime, there was Brandy, Fergie, Cassie, and Kassie. There were the BEST. And they loved my Granny just as much as she loved them.

As I raise critical funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I am hosting a virtual 5K race called the Dobie Dash 5K for LLS. Register before February 20, 2015, run or walk 3.1 miles between February 20, 2015 and March 20, 2015, and receive an awesome, custom-designed medal! This is a VIRTUAL race (meaning your run it on your own time) with a REAL gift (which will be mailed to you.) Make sure to take a picture of yourself after your run and post it on social media with the hashtag #dobiedash5kLLS. I’ll post your awesome #dobiedash5kLLS pictures here!

Want to make a difference in the lives of the many people and their families battling blood cancers? Or just looking for inspiration to meet those New Years resolutions? SIGN UP TODAY!

Registration for the race is $27.50. All proceeds from this virtual race will go straight to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – that’s at least a $20 donation for every registration! Do the math – if 100 people sign up, $2,000 will go to LLS!

Want to know what you’ll get for participating in this fantastic race? Here’s the breakdown!

  • All runners will receive a custom finisher’s medal like the one pictured above!*
  • The first 50 people who sign up will get a real race bib for your virtual run!
  • The first 100 people who sign up will get entered into a raffle to win one of 3 $15 Road ID gift cards!


*In order to have custom medals made for all of you awesome runners and walkers, I need 100 people to sign up for the Dobie Dash 5K for LLS – that will raise at least $2000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Sign up, tell your friends, and have fun!!
