make a dash for (someone or something)
To run suddenly and at high speed toward someone or something. Our taxi was late picking us up, so I'm going to have to make a dash for it when we get to the train station. I couldn't wait to get out of school, and I made a dash for the door as soon as the bell rang. I was so anxious to be back home that I made a dash for my parents as soon as I saw them in the airport.
