The Blazer Dash is an annual run that raises scholarship money for girls who, otherwise, wouldn’t be able to attend Notre Dame Prep and honors those who have passed on while attending NDP. This annual event has taken place for 24 years and always brings excitement to the school. The fun day began in 1997, and since then, it has grown bigger and bigger through the years.  

In charge of this wonderful event is Mrs. Osmeyer. She said, “We are so grateful for the support of the NDP community! Year after year, our community has shown up to support the endowed scholarships that have benefitted so many students throughout the years. We are looking forward to being together again this year and encourage you to register as an individual or start a fundraising team. Together, we will make an impact!”  

At the Blazer Dash, you can either walk a mile or run a 5K. At the event, there are snacks for all and awards for the winners of the 5K. After the race, there is a casual Mass for everyone to attend. This year, the event will take place on Sunday, September 26 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. To sign up, you can follow the link below to the registration page.  

We hope to see you at NDP on September 26 at 8 a.m.

Register for the Blazer Dash 2021! See you at the starting line!
