Smash the Dash Supports Woodland Dunes and Helps Reduce Cabin Fever



Two Rivers – Woodland Dunes Nature Center is encouraging people everywhere to get outside, take a walk, a run, or even a bike ride, but to get some exercise and fresh air this spring.


“Each spring we hold a Dash at the Dunes event to get people outside and moving.” stated Nancy Nabak, Event Director.  “It’s time to let go of the caged-up blues. We’re even offering a fun Spring Fever Scavenger Hunt this year. People of all abilities can participate in this scavenger hunt, and it’s a great family friendly event.”


Woodland Dunes is hosting its Smash the Dash event from April 15-23rd to raise funds for programs that thousands of children participate in each year. The goal of the event is to raise $10,000.


For those who like a competitive walk, run, or bike challenge, your course can be anywhere – a track, your neighborhood, or a trail system. Just record your time and submit your result when done. Anyone who participates in the Smash event will get a Smash the Dash T-shirt. Watch the Smash website for pickup details.
