Why: So many fun activities have been canceled the past few months. Legacy Dash will build bonds, let your team have fun and at the same time raise funds for an amazing organization!

For the past 5 years, The Legacy Project of Stark has been a permanent fixture inside of middle schools across Stark County, offering opportunities for students and trusted adult mentors to form developmental relationships.
As a result of COVID-19, we have expanded our program to include out-of-school mentoring opportunities for students who have chosen the online option of schooling, or students who may benefit from additional community support.
We realize that now more than ever students are in need of connection, encouragement and mentoring.
As a result, we have launched a 4-hour Saturday program called REMIX. During our time together, students will have an opportunity to participate in activities that fuel creativity, games that allow for laughter, and conversations that inspire wise choices.
Your participation in the DASH allows for costs to be kept low for REMIX. It will contribute to hiring trained, knowledgeable staff and providing all needed materials for mentors and students.
We are assuming that most teams are either families, or small groups who have been together and in contact since the beginning of this crazy season.
Therefore, when it comes to masks, each vehicle will determine if they decide to wear a mask during Legacy Dash based upon their comfort with each other.
For groups who are not families, masks are encouraged.
At the Finish Line we'll have a party with food!
When your team makes it to the finish line you will be joined by others teams and celebrate. It'll be an indoor//outdoor party. Dinner will be provided at NO extra cost. No worries, plenty of space to social distance.
For the indoor portion of the finish line masks are required. For the outdoor portion, masks are encouraged.
As per the state of Ohio... All individuals in Ohio must wear facial coverings in public at all times when: At an indoor location that is not a residence. Outdoors, but unable to maintain six-foot social distance from people who are not household members.
