The VanderDash is Vanderlyn’s signature community spirit-building family event. Through the VanderDash, Vanderlyn’s community and the broader community come together to celebrate our local school with a fun, fitness-focused morning. The Vanderlyn PTO is proud to say this will be the 11th year the VanderDash is run!
Our race draws competitive runners, casual participants, Vanderlyn students and their families. Over the past ten years, this race has hosted thousands of runners, walkers, and families through a professionally timed 5K race and a 1-Mile Fun Run. With more than 1,000 participants, our race is one of the largest events in Dunwoody!
The success of the VanderDash is dependent upon our committee volunteers, support from our generous sponsors, and participation of enthusiastic runners and walkers. If you are interested in volunteering, please use the contact link below.
