The unique annual event allows runners (and FUNdraisers) to raise money for Junior League of Omaha’s community projects. Participants sport their favorite pair of high heels (2” or higher) and race approximately 50 meters in either a team relay dash, individual race for men or women, or a race for those over 50, who are allowed to wear flats. Runners are strongly encouraged to participate donning a costume as prizes will be awarded for originality!
“The new dash venue will be a great for Junior League,” said Shelly Ruwe, High Heel Dash chair. “Midtown Crossing provides a great location with visibility throughout the city and provides ample opportunity for the committee to seek underwriting and in-kind donations from the locally owned businesses in the area. We are really excited to be working with the staff of Midtown Crossing and feel the new location will be a great advantage to gaining more traction and notoriety in the community for the projects that Junior League of Omaha supports.”
