Whether you were running, walking, or even being pushed in a stroller, if you were at Roosevelt Park in Minot today,
The Color Dash 5K was in Minot today for participants of all ages who wanted to get some exercise, while getting splashed with colorful powder along the way.
One campaign manager who has seen a number of these races, says that the way the atmosphere is - is what makes him want to come back over and over again.
(Marcus Dee, Campaign Manager, "The Color Dash") "The people who show up to these... they're so great. Because they come up and they give such a great energy to what we do. I mean, they're already having a good time with color thrown on them and everything, but the attitudes they come in with, that's the key."
The Color Dash makes a point to pair up with charities in the cities they travel to, and in Minot, this charity was Give 360.
And 50% of all the money made at the event today is going to a new children's museum in our community.
The museum will have different areas of learning for kids to interact with such as: science, reading, and more.
The president of Give 360 says that the Color Dash was a perfect way to bring together the community for this good cause.
(Reed Argent, President of Give 360) "Minot needs community events like this post-flood. And it's just an event where we can engage the community in fun activities like this. It's going to go to a good cause, Give 360 and the Children's museum, so it's just been a great day."
(Marcus Dee, Campaign Manager, "The Color Dash") "It really kind of enhances the community, not only with the people that are running the race, but also those that can help plug their money into local charities."
Further planning for a new children's museum in Minot will continue this fall.
