DECA Made It Count to $15,500 at the 2014 Finish Line/DECA Dash

The DECA International Career Development Conference certainly made it count today!

Over 1,250 runners and walkers came out for the fourth annual Finish Line/DECA Dash 5K Fun Run/Walk. The proceeds from this community service conference event benefit DECA’s Scholarship Fund and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

DECA is pleased to announce that this year’s event raised over $15,500 for MDA!  

In addition to the traditional 5K, the 2014 Finish Line/DECA Dash included an outdoor festival for those who wanted to support the event without the running and walking. Highlights from the festival were a shoe clinic from our title sponsor, Finish Line, a Body Basics class, music by InTheMix, a challenge by the Atlanta Fire Department and all of our sponsor tables.

A huge THANK YOU to all of the participants and our sponsors:
