Splash of Color Dash 5K Run/Walk | Cherokee, NC

How will Cherokee affect you?

Splash of Color Dash 5K Run/Walk

Saturday, April 2 from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm

Join us for this colorful event to raise money for the Children's Fair and Week of the Young Child, in collaboration with the Cherokee Children's Coalition. Participants receive a white Color Dash T-shirt. The rest of your outfit is up to you! Remember, whatever you wear will get splashed with color, so your favorite silk shorts should probably stay home. The color is 100% non-toxic, food- grade cornstarch and coloring. The UV color is 100% non-toxic, food-grade cornstarch and UV coloring. The UV water is 100% non-toxic UV dye and water. The bubbles are biodegradable and hypoallergenic—however, they’re not for eating. The colored bubbles are the same mix, just with a little 100% non-toxic food coloring. 

A debit or credit card can be accepted for preregistration using a PayPal account online here. If you are not preregistering, please bring cash! There won't be an ATM available. Debit cards, credit cards, or checks will not be accepted on-site.
