Texarkana... Get Ready to Dash For Cash with the Tigers!

Texarkana, TX – The Texas High School Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) will host their 1st Annual Dash for Cash 5K on Saturday, September 20 from 8:00 a.m. until Noon.

Featured events include a 5K Run/Walk and a one mile Tiger Cub Fun Run/Walk. Following the race, there will be a Tiger Celebration for participants and families featuring fitness, children’s event, food and fun!
