Lace up, Indy! It’s almost time to DASH!

Lace up, Indy! It’s almost time to DASH!

Find your running (or walking) shoes, grab your strollers, dust off your turkey hats…and get ready to “move your feet so others can eat!”

Join the cause!

In its 17th year, the Drumstick Dash rallies the community to raise funds and awareness for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Drumstick Dash is proudly owned and operated by Wheeler Mission, so 100% of the proceeds provide nutritious meals, safe shelter, and life-changing care for our neighbors in desperate need.

Run OR Walk!

Drumstick Dash is for runners and walkers…and even stroller/wagon riders! It’s fun for the WHOLE FAMILY! With 4.6 mile and 2.75 mile courses, participants choose whichever distance is comfortable.

And don’t forget! Our FREE Lil’ Gobbler’s Run and finisher medals are always a hit with the kiddos (12 and under)!

Not up for dashing but still want to participate? Volunteer! The Drumstick Dash is the second largest running event in Indiana, and we need 1,500 volunteers to make it safe, successful, and SO. MUCH. FUN.

Outta town???

…DASH AROUND! No matter where you spend Thanksgiving, you can still join the fun through our #OuttaTownDashAround virtual race option. Whether you’re Dashing in Florida, Iceland, or the southside of Indy, wear your shirt to show support for the men, women, and children Wheeler Mission serves. (Just don’t forget to snap a picture for the contest!)

Still need convincing?

It’s loads of fun on and off the course! Just like last year, we’re bringing back the:
…Live pre-race concert!
…FUN PATROL—beach balls and turkey hats galore!
…Costume Contest! Whether you’re dressed as a turkey, Spiderman, or a pair of sneakers, be sure to stop by the K-LOVE prize tent in the post-race fun zone to get a prize (while supplies last)!
…Post-race fun zone! We know you’ve got big dinner plans, but don’t miss out on our post-race snacks and beverages! We’re giving out Starbucks coffee and delicious snacks from Kroger, Clif Bar, and Frito Lay…they’re waiting for you as soon as you cross the finish line!


Don’t miss it!
