Thank you for helping make our 6th annual Dash for Dan another success! We hope to see you next year!

Due of the success of the event and the generosity of the people that support the event we were able to offer a second scholarship.  Please see our new Scholarship page for information on how to apply, as well as this year's Lake Park winner.

The Sixth Annual "Dash for Dan" 5K event is poised to take place on
Saturday, June 1st at 9:00 AM in Itasca, Illinois. 

"Dash for Dan"  is held in memory of Daniel Christophe, Jr., an Itasca youth whose life was cut short by a tragic motorcycle accident on the afternoon of April 17, 2007.

Although wearing a helmet and following the rules of the road, while riding his motorcycle Dan fell victim to a tragic accident with another driver.  The impact of the collision caused Dan to suffer injuries too severe to overcome.


At the time of the accident, Dan was an accounting major at Northern Illinois University.  He was a graduate of Lake Park High School (class of 2004) and St. Peter the Apostle Catholic School (class of 2000).


St. Peter the Apostle is honored to sponsor "Dash for Dan" in memory of this cherished alum.  In recognition of the Christophe family's dedication to Catholic education,
proceeds from this event will help fund memorial scholarships established in his name.


We hope you will join in supporting this event and help to continue Dan Christophe's legacy within the community.


Registration forms can be found on our Registration page.
Onsite registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the race starts promptly at 9:00 a.m.
