About This Race
On Saturday, October 15, 2016, Greene-Hills School will host its second annual Clint DeSena Dash beginning and ending on the Greene-Hills School campus. This chip-timed event will be competitive for serious runners, welcoming for casual runners and walkers, and will include a kid’s run! Proceeds from the 5K DeSena Dash will support the Callie DeSena College Fund and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

We are very excited about this event and are expecting many runners and their families to join us! Clint DeSena was a beloved colleague, friend, husband, and father, who fought a brave battle against brain cancer. Clint enjoyed running during his free time, running many races, and we are excited to honor him with this race. With the proceeds, we hope to bring everyone one step closer to a world without cancer, and to in the future, provide the means for a college education for his young daughter. Both of these things, Clint would have so desperately wanted.

Cancer is a terrible disease, that affects us all. Please consider helping us honor a courageous man who fought so bravely against it. And help us to bring everyone closer to a cancer free world. We wish to thank you in advance for your time and your consideration. We ask for your support at a level that is comfortable for you and your family. We hope to see you at the starting line on October 15th.
