Thousands line up for Seattle’s St. Patrick’s Day Dash

By Seattle Party Bus Rentals

Thousands of people celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and the arrival  of spring by running or walking in the annual St. Patrick’s Day  Dash in Seattle on Sunday.

The 4-mile event began 28 years ago as a race between bars, and  as a training event for an Irish Olympian. Now it’s Seattle’s  largest single-distance run/walk, jog or crawl where the winners  cross the finish before the last person starts.

The Dash benefits the Detlef Schrempf Foundation in support of  Northwest children’s charities. The funds are directed to four  Northwest children’s organizations: Camp Fire USA Puget Sound  Council, Seattle Children’s Autism Center, Rise n’ Shine, and the  Healing Center.
