Weekly Wag

The Dashing Whippets Running Team thanks our 2016 Partners for their generous support: NY Custom PT & Performance, Upper East Orthopaedics PC, RunnerClinicNYC, Body Balance Integrated Massage Therapy, SDL Performance Chiropractic, Bauer Dental Arts, Brooklyn Roasting Company, Strava, Fitletic, Inc, and adidas.
Thanks to everyone who already donated to the team! We already over 50% of our $5,000 goal. We had a Crowdrise campaign last year, during which we raised over $5,000 to support programs like paying Chris to coach, put on social and running events, and hold our track meet and road race. If you would like to donate this year, we’ve set up another Crowdrise campaign here:https://www.crowdrise.com/DWRT2016
