The Flash Dash Exists in Memory of Brandon Russell


On the morning of April 8th, 2017, Brandon Russell FINISHED the Rock Parkway half marathon, suddenly collapsed and later tragically passed away.   In everything Brandon did, he always finished 100%.  Brandon was a fantastic individual who loved running, comics, sports (MU, Royals and Chiefs), his family, his friends and his fiancé, Taryn.  He had nicknames such as Smiley, Flash, and Mr. Handsome.  Brandon should be remembered for all the amazing things he did, but one thing that he consistently did was bring people together to ensure they had fun.  This is exactly what the Flash Dash is about.  Bringing people together and ensuring they have a good time! #belikebrandon #blb
