ABOUT DSM'S BOLT TO BROADWAY AND BACK CAMPAIGN
Join DSM’s first-ever virtual fun run and step challenge kicking off on May 8! Whether you’re an avid runner or want some extra motivation to get your steps in, come on our virtual trek to New York City. Our collective goal is to raise $15,000 and complete 3,000 miles—that’s a full round trip from the Music Hall to Times Square and back. You can do it all on your treadmill, in your neighborhood, or on your favorite track.
All proceeds generated from Bolt to Broadway and Back will support DSM’s Give A Kid A Seat, a fundraising campaign which helps DSM provide thousands of promise-filled youth from underserved communities in North Texas free and subsidized tickets, with accompanying engagement activities, to attend DSM’s Broadway shows. Learn more about Give a Kid a Seat here.
All participants will receive a print-at-home completion certificate and a commemorative medal which will be mailed in June. Keep an eye on your email for more information!
GRAND PRIZE* – MOST FUNDS RAISED
The person who raises the most funds from May 8 to May 31 will receive a trip to New York City for two, including airfare, hotel stay, and tickets to two Broadway shows.*
2ND & 3RD PLACE WINNERS** – 2ND & 3RD MOST FUNDS RAISED
Second and third place winners—the people who raise the second and third most funds from May 8 to May 31—will each receive a pair of tickets to a Broadway show at Dallas Summer Musicals.**
WHERE: Anywhere! Since this challenge is virtual, you can complete it anywhere you like—your neighborhood, on vacation, at a park, at the gym, and more.
WHEN: Anytime between May 8 and May 31. You can register and participate up until May 31.
HOW: Register, then set your goals. Track your miles by connecting your fitness tracker device or entering them manually. Don’t want to run or walk, but like biking, golfing, or other activities? Use this activity chart to calculate steps.
WHY: After being dark for over a year due to COVID, we are now nearing the finish line to bring Broadway back to Dallas this August. We would love your support to build the excitement for Broadway’s triumphant return and to continue providing youth from underserved communities free and subsidized tickets.
Ready, set, let’s go to Broadway (and back)!
