Lingzi Dream Dash 5K Logo 2019 v1

The first-ever Lingzi Dream Dash 5k Run/Walk was held on Saturday, August 11, 2018 on Boston Common. The race reflects the beauty Lingzi found in her adopted home of Boston. Runners and walkers completed an unconventional 3.1-mile course through the city’s signature park celebrating the things Lingzi loved — things like community, education and the simple beauty of a morning in the park. In 2019, this exciting event will be held on the Charles River, an important location to Lingzi during her time in Boston, in the fall.
