Green takes over Sheridan for the Leprechaun Dash

SHERIDAN—For several years now, one of Sheridan’s most popular fundraising events has also been one of its most festive: The Leprechaun Dash, benefitting New Kids on the Block daycare.

On Saturday, March 16, Sheridan celebrated the holiday early with one-mile and 5k runs as well as a 100-yard kids’ dash. Finishers over age 21 were treated to a free beer from Sheridan’s Ruby Valley Brew, while younger participants had age- and holiday-appropriate snacks and beverages waiting for them at the finish line.

The event drew nearly 100 people this year, one of the largest in event history, pressed on by a break in recent frigid temperatures and the emergence of blue skies for the first time in several weeks. 

Proceeds from the Leprechaun Dash, which totaled over $2,000, benefit New Kids on the Block, a nonprofit daycare, which serves families around the Ruby Valley. It is one of the daycare’s largest fundraising events of the year.
