Eventbrite - 22nd Annual Dash 4 Diabetes

Make a difference in the community by supporting the Diabetes Self-Management Program at Chester County Hospital through the annual Dash 4 Diabetes 5K, 2.5K Walk & Kids Fun Run. Each year, the educational program educates more than 900 people on how to control their particular type of diabetes - juvenile, gestational, Type 1, Type 2, or pre-diabetes. All proceeds from this fundraising event benefit diabetes education at Chester County Hospital.

Dashing is Great Business

Participating in the Dash is a great way to encourage employee wellness and team building, while marketing your business and conducting community outreach.

Sponsorship comes with complementary run entries. Invite your clients, employees, friends and family to run/walk and give them a reason to get in shape, a public goal to work toward and a celebration of their achievement. Your team will enjoy the camaraderie that comes from achieving a common goal and helping people living with diabetes in our community. With your logo on their shirts and photos and video documenting your participation, you will showcase your company and your support of the community.

Best of all participation is easy and your guests and employees can register themselves!

Can't Dash? Here Are Other Great Ways to Help!

  • Donate by Check: Make checks payable to "CCHF Dash" and mail to: The Chester County Hospital Foundation, 701 E. Marshall St., West Chester, PA 19380. Please include your name, email, mailing address and phone number with your gift. 

Make It Your Business! Participating in the Dash is a great way to conduct team building, marketing, and community outreach while encouraging employee wellness.

Sponsorship comes with complementary run entries. Invite your clients, employees, friends and family to run/walk.

Participating in a common activity, learning new skills and giving back to the community are all excellent ways to help build your work team. You can accomplish all three by volunteering at a hospital event. We host 26 events throughout the year and have one that will fit your schedule, the time you can donate, and provide a meaningful experience for your company or organization.


Events supporting Chester County Hospital are "serious fun" and raise money in support of the highest level of medical care for those living in our community. While participating is a great way to help, you may also consider volunteering, sponsoring, donating or supporting our events.
