Kids – and the adults who love them – will enjoy, remember and anticipate this event made just for them! Komen Philadelphia and UnitedHealthcare created the Dash because we know, even the littlest steps can make a huge impact in our fight… and it is our privilege to nurture their hope, and reward their efforts.
