Dash for a Difference for Boston Cares!

Dash for a Difference for Boston Cares!

An amazing five-hour adventure in volunteerism and teamwork.

Teams of "Dashers" will gather in downtown Boston at 9 a.m., when each will receive the first of the 10-12 destinations they must visit during the competition. At each destination, teams must complete tasks in order to have a passport stamped and receive their clue to the next destination. The majority of tasks will be mini-service projects; while others may be learning-oriented, where teams must piece together clues to gain points; and others will be "just for fun" assignments. All teams will be invited to toast the day's successes with snacks and beer at their final stop - the Samuel Adams Celebration of Service.

Throughout the Boston area.

Saturday April 30, 2011, 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM.

The Dash for a Difference benefits Boston Cares, a non-profit organization that mobilizes more than 25,000 volunteers annually in support of Greater Boston schools and non-profit agencies. The Dash also benefits the community agencies who will be aided by the collective efforts of more than 200 volunteers during the event.

Each individual participant is responsible for raising a minimum of $100 in pledges.
