Dash Down Greenville 5K
Congratulations and thanks to the sell-out crowd of runners and walkers who participted in this year's St. Paddy's Day Dash Down Greenville. It was a fine morning to celebrate, even if you were only Irish for the day. A record number of people donned their green gear, and ran (or walked) with us down Greenville Avenue right before the big parade. We had beer, food, a live band, cash prizes, and more fun than ever before. Besides having fun, participants contributed to the North Texas Food Bank, the annual beneficiary of the event.by
