WHY Michael Ran The Chicago Marathon

Follow the journey on:

5 Gold Medalists Unite to Find the Next Generation of Speedskaters with a... Snowball (marshmallow) Eating Contest!

DASH’s Gold Medal Advisory Board members, Bonnie Blair, Chad Hedrick, Chris Witty, Casey
FitzRandolph, and Dan Jansen will compete to see who can eat the most mini marshmallows, but the
twist is they only have as much time as their lifetime personal best in the 500m.

The Snowball Eating Contest is just the start of DASH’s 4-year fundraising campaign, enabling them to teach invaluable life lessons to tens of thousands of kids while also identifying and supporting rising stars for 2030/34.

JOIN IN by contributing to the growth of speedskating, then SHARE your picks on social media using the hashtags #DASHSkating & #YourPick (i.e. #ChrisWitty)

The Competitors 
(i.e. Gold Medalists!)

They only have as much time as their 500m PB, who will eat the most snowballs?!
