Clay Cooley Presents2-01

Please join over 1,000 runners, walkers, and wheelchair racers for this year’s 23rd Annual Clay Cooley Dash for Dignity 5K race and 1 mile Fun Run.  Fuller drive will be blocked off for a big stage, food and entertainment for the entire family.  The start/finish line is on Fuller Drive behind Urban Towers and continues up and down West Las Colinas Blvd. back to where the route began. This event is dedicated to, and supports, adults with disabilities and disabled Veterans. Our goal is to help them to reach their highest level of independence and employment.




Dash for Dignity 2016 offers a 5K run and 1 mile fun run.

This event raises funds and awareness for Citizens Development Center (CDC), a D/FW area non-profit that serves adults with intellectual, mental health and/or physical disabilities.  A 60+ year old agency, CDC serves about 500 disabled adults each year.  We also serve disabled adults’ families, caregivers and supporters, bringing our resources to well over 1,000 annually throughout the Metroplex.
