So what is Derby Dash?
The Equine Department will host its 3rd annual Derby Dash, this Saturday, April 16th. The Derby Dash is a 5k run or 1 mile walk around the Delaware Valley Universities scenic campus. Registration for the race begins at 9am at the Equestrian Center. The race is expected to begin at 10am followed by breakfast and awards. There will also be, a silent auction, and a DJ. Runners can bring their dogs as well!
The funds raised by the Derby Dash event go directly to the Equine Science and Management students through the Student Professional Development Grant.Students are able to apply for this grant to fund professional activities outside of the university. Activities include; the United States Hunter Jumper Association’s Emerging Athletes Program, The British Horse Society Exam, Farrier School, and Travel Expenses to Expos.
