Over the last twenty-three years, the Dove Dash has become one of the most anticipated fundraisers in Rancho Santa Margarita, where families, businesses, and patrons return year after year to take part in this community event.
The 2023 Dove Dash will be an in-person 5K and Walk-A-Thon with a virtual option supporting High Hopes Head Injury Program. High Hopeswww.HighHopes.ws is a 501 (c)(3) charitable non-profit organization raising funds to support Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Stroke, and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients.
100% of the proceeds go directly to provide scholarship assistance to help economically disadvantaged individuals receive much-needed rehabilitation services at High Hopes to regain their lives. High Hopes is a nationally recognized program dedicated to the rehabilitation and retraining of loved ones who have been devastated by traumatic head injuries, strokes, and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Everyone is welcome to register, those who walk with the assistance of walkers, wheelchairs, caregivers, family, any and all strollers are welcome to join the race!
