HOW DOES DASH & DINE FOR DC WORK? IT ONLY TAKES THREE STEPS… SIGN UP, DASH, THEN DINE!
STEP 1 – SIGN UP
Participants register for $24. When signing up, you will be asked to select one local business and one local nonprofit from the list of our event partners. Your registration fee is split between the groups you selected in each category! $12 goes toward a personal food / beverage credit and $12 is donated to your chosen service organization.
STEP 2 – DASH
Between March 26 and 31, registered participants are encouraged to complete as many workouts as they can from our menu of challenges!
There are tons of great challenges like biking and running to choose from, scaled for all levels of fitness, in addition to daily virtual challenges from November Project DC, inspired yoga sessions with Yoga Heights DC, and an in-person hiking event led by Destination Hike! You can also participate by making donations of essential items–like food and clothing–to each of the beneficiaries.
Each day, a prize from local partners (think Yoga Heights memberships and gift cards for free pizza) will be up for grabs. Want to win? Post a photo to Instagram showing that you’ve completed a challenge using the hashtag #dashanddinedc and mention/tag District Sports and November Project DC. Or, If you prefer, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For every challenge you complete you’ll be entered to win the prize for that day!
Menu of physical and social challenges includes:
- Go for a run/jog
- Take a hike/walk
- Get on a bike and ride
- Practice yoga
- Donate needed goods to So Others Might Eat (drop-offs at their NW DC Drop-off location) or check out their Amazon Wishlist
- Donate food to Capital Area Food Bank (drop-offs at their DC or NOVA locations) or check out their Amazon Wishlist
- Complete one of November Project DC‘s daily March Madness workouts
STEP 3 – DINE
Dine out by redeeming your credit at the local business you selected from our list of available choices.
Don’t forget, you can help others dine, too! $12 of your registration fee is donated to charity, but we’d never stop you from doing more… If able, we encourage everyone to consider an additional donation to one of our event beneficiaries, money which will go a long way to help combat food insecurity in the DC area.
