Dragonfly Dash to benefit young cancer patients

Saturday, Oct. 8, 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Liberty Center Shopping Center, Liberty Twp.

The Dragonfly Foundation and Liberty Center will team up for the Dragonfly Dash in support of young cancer patients and their families. The main event is the “dash,” in which participants will walk, skip, roll or hop a half block (333 feet) around Liberty Center’s green space adjacent to the Foundry building.

The repetition of the number 3 in the length of the dash signifies mind, body and spirit, according to event organizers, and the emphasis is not on how fast you go but how much you enjoy the ride.

Cincinnati Circus will provide entertainment on the lawn at Liberty Center, and there will be music, snacks and drinks, an auction/raffle, an after-party and awards ceremony on the rooftop deck. Jennifer Fritsch of Q102 will be the emcee.

Sponsors include Liberty Center Foundation, Cincinnati Circus, Hubbard Interactive and Platinum Marketing Group.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 4-18. A $5 discount will be available to those with a current military ID.
