Dash to a Great Future

2022 Dash Details 

Join Club Blue as they Dash to a Great Future to benefit the more than 4,700 youth who walk through the doors of a Middle Tennessee Boys & Girls Club each year. Supporters who participate will compete in a month-long, peer-to-peer fundraising campaign to raise essential funds to help youth learn about the world around them, live a healthy lifestyle, and become leaders among their peers and in the community.

Last year those who fundraised for Dash raised $13,000 to benefit BGCMT youth.

What is Club Blue?

Club Blue is a philanthropic community comprised of young professionals (ages 21-40) that live or work in Middle Tennessee. Club Blue members have access to coordinated volunteer opportunities, professional development seminars with Middle Tennessee leaders, and networking events. Our vision is, “To build a thriving philanthropic community that is committed to long-term investment in the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee and the lives of young people.”

Club Blue members give at least $25 per month; this monthly fee covers the annual membership fee for one youth and helps BGCMT honor its commitment that no child or family is ever turned away because of their inability to pay.

Do I have to be a Club Blue member to participate in Dash to a Great Future?

No; you do not have to be a Club Blue member to participate in Dash to a Great Future. In fact, we welcome the participation of any community member or BGCMT supporter. If you have a passion for youth and helping build Great Futures, we want you to fundraise with us!

I want to participate. Is there a registration charge, and what are my next steps?

Great! We are excited to have you on board! There is no registration charge to participate. Please fill out the registration form HERE or Email Oliver Arney at Oarney@bgcmt.org for more information.

I see there are two events during the fundraiser; are they mandatory?

No; these events are not mandatory but strongly encouraged.

The Back2School Bash is the kickoff for the fundraiser. During this time, you will meet some of the youth you are raising money to support and have an opportunity to play games with them. You'll also have a chance to win 'scholarships' which will increase your total dollars raised and will bring you one step closer to graduation and being our top fundraiser!

The campaign culminates in a 'graduation party,' which is a time to celebrate our fundraisers, recognize our graduates (i.e. those who raise at least $1,000), and thank our donors.

You won't want to miss these fun events!
