About Billy Lindsay Run, Presented by TRIA

The 2022 Billy Lindsay Run will be the biggest and best in the event's history!  2022 will have CHIP TIMING, GREAT PRIZES, and MORE RUNNERS.  Thank you to everyone that joined us in 2021. We raised over $60,000, which was $10,000 higher than our goal! We can't wait to make this an even bigger event in 2022 by raising our goal of $150,000!

  • Carrie Tollefson, Run Ambassador: 

    We have the great privilege to announce that Carrie Tollefson, legendary local runner will be our 2022 Run Ambassador once again, courtesy of sponsor Hiway Credit Union. Carrie was born and raised in Dawson, MN where she was a 13-time State Champion.  She attended Villanova University, where she was a 5-time NCAA Champion and the 1998 NCAA Indoor Track Athlete of the year.  She was also the first person in NCAA history to win both the 3K and 5K titles.  In her post collegiate career, she was a three time national champion and after winning the 1500m trials in 2004, she represented the US in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. 

  • Billy Lindsay: The run/walk is named after Dr. William Lindsay, renowned heart surgeon, friend and coach to many. Dr. Lindsay, a.k.a. Billy Lindsay, was motivated by a powerful mentor to pursue his dreams, and we've now named our Outdoor Rink on the Minneapolis Greenway in his honor, located at 2838 5th Avenue South. Here is a link to his story.
  • DinoMights is pleased and honored to have TRIA as the 2022 Presenting Sponsor of the Billy Lindsay Run!  Tria provides world class orthopedic care and sports medicine.  Tria is leading the way in orthopedic innovation, research and patient outcomes.

Why Participate?

At DinoMights we build long-term relationships with at-risk youth to provide the support every child needs to grow into a self-assured, competent adult. Your participation says you care about Dino youth and our program. Your support through participation is critical to the ongoing success of the DinoMights. THANK YOU!

Your Support Makes a Difference

Billy Lindsay is the namesake of our DinoMights rink.  He grew up at the playground and found mentors in his sports coaches.  His story embodies so much of who we are at DinoMights.  We will be using funds from he run to support programming and honor Billy Lindsay's legacy.  We are honored to welcome TRIA as the Presenting Sponsor.  We are also proud to welcome the Minnesota Wild as supporters of the run.  

We recently signed an agreement which will allow us to refrigerate the Billy Lindsay Rink.  This means that our outdoor rink will be open for an extra 4-6 weeks.  Dino participants will have increased opportunities to skate, and be mentored at the upgraded facility.  We'll be increasing the number of staff and amount of time that staff interact with youth. We would like to raise $150,000 to kickstart these efforts. We hope that we will have the best year ever after enduring the difficulties of the pandemic.  You are helping to make that happen for hundreds of amazing local youth!
