DOTHAN - Providence Christian School's second annual EagleFest will be Saturday, September 21, on the school's campus. EagleFest will begin with Dash for Cash - an 8K, 5K and one mile fun run. Same day registration begins at 6:30 a.m. Race start time at 8 a.m. At 9 a.m., EagleFest will open on the football field. Patrons can enjoy inflatables, concessions and a silent auction.

"Dash for Cash will be a race for all running levels," said Nicholas Ireland, Providence's cross country coach. "Our races will be chip timed, ensuring the most accurate finishing time.

Entrance into EagleFest cost $15. Arm bands can be purchased at the school office or at the event.

"Our goal was to create an event for the whole family," said Wells. "EagleFest is a great opportunity to spend a fun-filled day outside enjoying fellowship, family and friends."
