DASH for Detection

DASH for Detection is a family friendly 5K walk/run that takes place along Chicago’s magnificent lakefront. Whether you’re a runner, jogger, team leader, volunteer, or cheering spectator – at the end of the day, you’re a catalyst for change, and a supporter of early detection pancreatic cancer research.

DASH for Detection 2017:

The Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundaton and The Lustgarten Foundation are pleased to announce the 2017 DASH for Detection 5K Walk/Run for Pancreatic Cancer Research will be held, again, at Chicago's legendary Soldier Field!


Sunday, June 11, at 9AM the race for early detection is on! The walk/run will be routed along Chicago's Lakefront paths, through the Museum Campus, and will begin and end at Soldier Field's premier indoor event space, The Midway Club. The use of The Midway Club will also serve as DASH headquarters for all pre and post race activities. Participants will be able to prepare and decompress in comfort; and sponsors, prizewinners, and teams will enjoy recognition through unique entertainment opportunities.

DASH for Detection is a family friendly event with plenty of activities, including a Kid's DASH. All DASH for Detection routes are handicap and stroller accessible. Sorry, no dogs allowed.
