The St. Patrick’s Day Dash and Leprechaun Lap!

March 12, 2017

Join us for the 33rd Annual F5 St. Patrick’s Day Dash on Sunday March 12th, and your little leprechaun runs FREE!

It’s a great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your family and friends. The Seattle Children’s Museum is hosting a variety of free entertainment, directly after the Leprechaun Lap, including activities and supervision sponsored by A Nanny For U (4-time winner of Parent Map’s Golden Teddy Award!), costume contests and prizes, healthy snacks and of course, access to all the great exhibits in the museum.

Enjoy the Post Dash Bash on the Fisher Pavilion Lawn, for more free giveaways, snack samples and Irish entertainment, as well as Seattle Center’s Armory for Irish Heritage Festival. It’s a great day to be Irish – or just Irish for a day!

Net proceeds of the Dash support the Detlef Schrempf Foundation, which has contributed over $540,000 to local non-profits from this event. On-going beneficiaries include Camp Fire Central Puget Sound, Seattle Children’s Autism Center, See Ya Later Foundation, Outdoors For All, plus many other Northwest youth organizations and children’s charities.
