The Patterson Foundation is proud to host its 4th annual ImpACT Dash 5k and all proceeds will benefit the Foundation's grantee partners. By joining the ImpACT Dash on September 14, you are helping support programs that increase access to oral health care, programs that place assistance dogs with individuals and first responders, and you'll be a part of granting future scholarships to Patterson employees' kids.


We are offering an in-Person event at the MN HQ and a virtual option, customizable for you, wherever you are. Copy the in-person event and make it work for your location. The ImpACT Dash works well as a team or individually. All racers must view and agree to the ImpACT Dash 5K Waiver.
