  Introducing the first-ever partnership event between two non-profit organizations serving the Deaf, the Louisiana School for the Deaf Foundation (LSDF) and Deaf Focus, in a fundraising effort for the students at Louisiana School for the Deaf (LSD), and Deaf Focus' continuing services and advocacy efforts for the community.

LSDF’s signature Dash For Kids will merge with Deaf Focus’ RunWalkSign! 5K in hopes that this collaboration will bring emphasis on Deaf Education as well as the need for awareness of the students’ journey to self-reliance, independence, and being contributing members of society.

We are looking to raise funds and awareness of the Louisiana School for the Deaf and the Deaf Culture, the school’s Foundation in collaboration with Deaf Focus will hold the 18th annual Dash for Deaf Kids / RunWalkSign! 5K race at 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 23, 2019.

This year, the Race day will be expanded to include activities beyond the race to expand community interest and participation.



Please contact us if you are interested to sponsor the event! jay@deaffocus.org (Deadline: March 1, 2019)
