THANK YOU!! Once again, our loyal supporters came through and walked their way to almost $750 in donations to DASH during our 5th Annual DASH at Dulles 5k Mall Walk. We were so happy to have over 30 participants and to include Lynne and Andy Russell via Skype from sunny France.
Special thanks to Dulles Town Center and its staff for always being so accommodating, especially with the change in dates due to the inclement weather.
We can’t do our important work educating teens, their parents and friends about teen dating abuse without you! Always remembering you, Siobhan.

On January 27, The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors declared February 2015 as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Sponsored by Vice Chairman Penelope Gross and Braddock District Supervisor John C. Cook the board presented the proclamation to Chantilly Youth Group Director Carmen Vargas. Wendy Claunch was happy to be included as the representative for DASH! Let’s make it a priority to spread the word about teen dating violence to our community during February!
For the third year in a row, DASH was awarded an ExxonMobil grant through the fundraising of its Employees’ Favorite Charities Campaign 2014. The Fairfax employees choose from among qualified charities to designate a donation. This year contributions reached a record $2,838,000 in support of more than 550 different non-profit organizations. During the past decade Fairfax employees have donated more than $29 million to area charities. Special thanks to ExxonMobil employee and DASH angel John Stipa for continuing to support DASH through his contributions to the campaign.
