654 people registered in the 5k and one-mile walk.
“Brandon will be remembered for bring people together and making every gathering a great time,” said James Reyes, a close friend of Russell’s according to a press release. “This is exactly what the Flash Dash is about.”
The Flash Dash raised $100 thousand between registration fees, sponsors and donors, including $45 thousand through a GoFundMe campaign.
Proceeds from the race will go to The Brandon Russell Memorial Foundation. A portion of the proceeds will also go toward The Global Orphan Project. Both organizations are Kansas City based.
