2nd Annual Dryden 5K Run for the Pride

It's time to register for the 2nd Annual Dryden 5K Run for the Pride,  brought to you by the Dryden Boys and Girls Lacrosse Programs

Link to the Application

The Dryden Boys and Girls Lacrosse Programs are partially funded, meaning that the school budget pays for transportation to games, but the Boys and Girls Lacrosse Booster Clubs are responsible for raising funds to pay for coaches, referee's, equipment including goals/nets,scorebooks etc… The Dryden High School is a wonderful partner with the Dryden Lacrosse programs. Until the day comes that the district can work the Boys and Girls team into the budget, we must continue to hold exciting events such as the "Run for the Pride" to enable the lacrosse programs to continue as a school-sponsored sport.
