What's a Color Dash?
You will want to start the race with a clean, white shirt, but by the end of the race you will be covered in various colors.
As you move through the dash, you will find yourself being covered in a spectrum of colors: blue, green, pink, orange and yellow. At each kilometer during the DASH a new color explosion will add to the clean slate that you once were, until you come to the finish line and arrive into a final explosion of colors.
Now, we know that running isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but we encourage you to change it up! Rather than dashing away from something, try dashing TOWARDS something this year. Just COLOR DASH. Not for any reason. Dash for fun. Just Dash, because, or even better, Dash to raise awareness and celebrate World Down Syndrome Day!
What’s in that color – is it safe?
The color is a non-toxic, non-irritating, food-grade colored corn-starch. Processed right here in the rockin’ United States of America. So running, walking, crawling or rolling through this spectacular show of color and laughter may in fact change your perspective but not your level of wellness.
