Monster Dash - Texas (2011)

Dawn and Joe plan this event.
Monster Dash Gets Better Each Year

Dawn and Joe J., long-time members and committed volunteers for FIRST, once again held their annual Monster Dash/Fun Run at Friendswood High School in Friendswood, Texas. Joe’s and Dawn’s daughter, 13-year-old Jordan, is affected with epidermoyltic ichthyosis (EI, formerly called EHK). On a beautiful Saturday in October, friends, family, and newcomers came out to support Joe, Dawn, and Jordan, help raise funds for FIRST, and enjoy the festivities of the day. The event was highlighted with a special appearance by Miss Texas USA, Brittany Booker. In addition, a family from Houston, who have 11-year-old Gina, affected with CIE, traveled to Friendswood for the day to enjoy the event. This year, 194 runners participated in the event and were given a Monster Dash t-shirt. There was a race for children, and walks/runs for adults. Prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each category. Every participant left the day with a smile! The family’s efforts raised more than $16,000 for FIRST!
