The High Heel Dash pits competitors in separate men's and women's heats as they race 25 yards clad in heels at least 3 inches tall. Party Unit's DJ Bob begins spinning tunes at 4 p.m., but the sprints don’t begin until 6:30 p.m., ensuring each contestant has time to leave work or run a pregame marathon. The first, second, and third place finishers each receive prizes, and each contestant receives an official High Heel Dash T-shirt. Though not required, contestants are encouraged to raise money, with a prize awarded to the racer who raises the most funds. Proceeds go to Project Healthy Smile, an organization that provides dental health education and basic dental products to underserved communities around the world. Special thanks go to the events sponsors the Ridgedale Center, The CW, United Way, Wells Fargo, Minnesota Monthly, MASA, Stratford Company, Ice Pak, Minneapolis2night, Ignight Models, Party Unit.

Aegis Foundation

Aegis Foundation sprouted from the mind of one man, but it has endured thanks to the tireless efforts and unyielding belief of a passionate board of directors. Always an avid volunteer, William Panzarella was working with a Minneapolis organization to help at-risk youth when they were forced to close due to lack of funding. Undaunted by the setback, William took up the challenge, establishing Aegis to help raise money for other organizations that provide safe, supportive environments for youth. Like cooties at a summer camp, the enthusiasm quickly spread, and Aegis soon found itself with chapters in Minneapolis, Chicago, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Beneficiaries of Aegis’ efforts include organizations such as One Heartland, Project Footsteps, Reclaim, and other foundations that strive to help youth via disease prevention, vocational training, and education.
