Welcome to the Make a Difference Dash at ONE!

We are “kicking off” the Alltech ONE Conference, our annual flagship event, with a community 5K run/walk through beautiful downtown Lexington on Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 8:00 a.m.

Dr. Pearse Lyons, founder of Alltech, believed in living each day to the fullest and making a difference in the lives of others. An avid runner, Dr. Lyons also never missed an opportunity to lace up his shoes and outpace his friends. The Make a Difference Dash combines running and philanthropy while celebrating a life well-lived.

Proceeds from the 5K will go to the Pearse Lyons ACE Foundation, which serves our philanthropic activities in Kentucky and around the world.

We are excited to invite the community to the Make a Difference Dash at ONE as we celebrate coming together in person and making a difference, together!
