The Cape Cod Foundation has been chosen to administer the D-Y Dolphin Dash Fund. That fund supports the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School Athletic Department.
The Dash, which started in 2016, is a 5K Road Race/Walk to raise money for DYHS student athletes. Each year, students must pay a $100 fee to join any of the school’s athletic teams. DYHS Assistant Principal and Athletic Director, Paul Funk, says in 2016, funds raised from the event helped cut that fee in half and last year’s Dash raised enough money to cover the full cost for participating students. About 400 students compete on multiple DYHS teams during the year.
Cape Cod Foundation President and CEO, Kristin O’Malley, says the Foundation is honored to partner with DYHS to help remove barriers for students wishing to participate in athletics.
