We are looking The Dash For Camp is a 5K Run/Walk event taking place this year on Saturday, November 11, 2023, at Merchant Park in Hilliard, Ohio! Our race for the past few years has taken place at Roger A. Reynolds Municipal Park, and while we are sadly no longer able to use that park for the race, we are excited that we get to stay in Hilliard! As in years past, proceeds from the race go to Camp Hamwi, which serves children and teens with diabetes, as well as diabetes education programs offered by Central Ohio Diabetes Association, an Agency of LifeCare Alliance. 

The Dash For Camp is a chance for Central Ohio Diabetes Association and Camp Hamwi's biggest supporters to make an impact each year. Runners are encouraged to form teams and help raise funds to support Camp Hamwi. Prizes will be given out to our top fundraisers!

Sign up for The Dash for Camp and run or walk for a good cause! Not only will prizes be given out, but we will also have camp games available to play before and after the race.  

Central Ohio Diabetes Association is one of the last two remaining diabetes support programs in the state of Ohio, so each dollar raised helps keep these incredible services available to the Central Ohio community.
