We are excited to present the Connected Special Edition for the year 2015! Click here to Register for DASH 2015
DASH is essentially a three-in-one project, comprising of a pre-event fund raiser, 5km charity walk/treasure hunt and a musical event, holding on October 10, 2015. DASH is the annual social impact program of Connected Lagos.
Because we should, because we can- DASH was introduced so that we might all do our bit in empowering and supporting charity organizations and charitable causes.
One of our objectives is to raise collectively Ten million naira (NGN10, 000, 000) for the 5 nominated charities during the course of Connected DASH project.
The project is broken down to two major stages;
- A pre-event Charity Fundraiser
- #ConnectedDASH Campaign – Completed
- #DASHforCharity Campaign – Ongoing
- DASH Demo & Media Shoot (June 13, 2015) – Completed
- Team fundraising Effort – Ongoing
- Ticket Sales for The Gathering – Ongoing
- The Main Event (October 10, 2015)
- A district wide treasure hunt / charity-walk organized in teams of 5 with stops over in some of the proposed charity locations.
- The Gathering – A fun music, dance & comedy event to mark the end of the fundraiser.
The treasure hunt will be on the morning of the main event. The winning team wins more money for their selected charity.
The event will end with a music, dance & comedy event called “the Gathering”. This will be the single gathering point for all participants. People interested in the concert alone will also be welcomed, however they will be required to make a donation to the charities. All monies donated will go to any of the selected 5 charities.
