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.
