Success with dyslexia starts here

Dyslexia Dash


This is an in-person race and a virtual race. You choose whichever one works for you. 

The in person races will be held on October 21, 2023 at Perimeter Mall, 4400 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA, 30346. The race will begin in the parking lot near the Von Maur store. The Dyslexia Dash will include both a 5K and 1-mile kids run for those with big hearts but little legs (children ten years of age and under). The 1-mile kids run begins at 8:00 a.m., and the 5km run begins at 8:30 a.m. There will be a kids play area, disc jockey, awards ceremony, and sponsor tents to visit.

The Dyslexia Dash is a 5K run/walk organized by the Georgia Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) to raise money and awareness for dyslexia. The International Dyslexia Association–Georgia Branch is a non-profit, scientific and educational organization which was formed to increase public awareness of dyslexia. IDA-GA is a resource and support system for parents, dyslexics, and educators.

Every year, Swift is a sponsor and TEAM SWIFT shows up in force to run, walk and celebrate together as a community. It’s an event not to be missed!
