Dolphin Dash 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run is happening on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at 08:00AM EST at Anna Maria Elementary School (south entrance) with tickets starting at $35.00
The 15th Annual Dolphin Dash is a family friendly 5k and 1 Mile fun run officiated by the Bradenton Runners Club that starts and ends at Anna Maria Elementary School on beautiful Anna Maria Island. It's a flat & fast out & back course through residential Holmes Beach. All proceeds from the race benefit the Anna Maria Elementary PTO. In past years, this race has provided improvements such as a new stage in the auditorium for the school plays, overhead projectors in the classrooms, new cafe tables for the kids to eat lunch, new benches in the pick up line and expansion of the estuary to the whole school. The featured design on the T-shirt is an Anna Maria Elementary student selected from an art contest led by Mr. Wooten, the Art Teacher. In addition, this year there has been a strong emphasis on earning sponsorships from island businesses to gain attention to the local community that has been affected by the Red Tide. THANK YOU for your generosity and support of the students of Anna Maria Elementary!!
