The Billy Lindsay Run 10K/5K/NO K to raise funds for DinoMights and honor Billy Lindsay, now open for registration.
Join us on June 13th for the Billy Lindsay Run/Walk for DinoMights! The philosophy of DinoMights centers around connecting with youth from their early elementary years through high school graduation, and providing them with the support they need to become self-assured, competent adults.
Using hockey as an incentive, DinoMights provides academic tutoring, mentoring, computer instruction, studies, camping, community service, and various other faith-based activities that help fulfill the mission to develop physical, academic, social and spiritual excellence. Since 1995, the philosophy of DinoMights has focused on whole life impact and long-term relationships with diverse youth possessing significant unmet needs in the Central, Powderhorn Park, and Phillips neighborhoods of South Minneapolis. Our innovative approach engages students through the power of community and provides them with the opportunities they need to become self-assured, competent adults. DinoMights provides a powerful combination of traditional enrichment through recreation and intentional strategies that respond to children’s unique developmental and academic needs. Learn more here.
The run/walk is named after Dr. William Lindsay, renowned heart surgeon, friend and coach to many. Dr. Lindsay, a.k.a. Billy Lindsay, was motivated by a powerful mentor to pursue his dreams, and we've now named our Outdoor Rink on the Minneapolis Greenway in his honor. That spot is the start and finish line for this event, thus we wanted to name it after Billy Lindsay too! Here is a link to his story.
