Then gather your team and register for the Corporate Dash for a Difference taking place on Friday, October 4, 2019

Coordinated by Hands On Hartford and held in partnership with Prudential, the Corporate Dash for a Difference provides volunteers teams a chance to explore the city of Hartford while completing meaningful and impactful service projects.

Teams earn points throughout the day as service projects are completed, landmarks are visited, and by correctly answering Hartford trivia questions. The event culminates with a celebration in which volunteers reflect on their day of service. The team with the most points is named the winner and has the opportunity to award a grant to a participating non-profit.
