The Color Dash 5k Fun Run June 18th
June 15, 2016
The Color Dash 5K Fun Run will take place on Saturday, June 18th in Pinedale. The purpose of this yearís Pinedale Color Dash is to raise money for the organization Casting For Recovery, a breast cancer survivor retreat for women.
The mission of Casting for Recovery is to enhance the quality of life of women with breast cancer through a unique program that combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. The retreats offer opportunities for women to find inspiration, discover renewed energy for life and experience healing connections with other women and nature. Casting for Recoveryís retreats are open to breast cancer survivors of all ages, in all stages of treatment and recovery, and are free to participants. Casting For Recovery is a non-profit organization which was begun in 1998 conducting retreats all over the United States for women breast cancer survivors.
At the Pinedale Color Dash, 50% of the profit of registration and merchandise stay local, benefitting Casting for Recovery as the charity partner. The funds raised from the dash will go towards this yearís breast cancer retreat, where 14 women from Wyoming will get a free week of pampering. Not only will these women get a chance to relax, but they will also learn a new skill (fly fishing) that aides in decreasing lymphedema, a common side effect in breast cancer patients.
Registration is on Saturday, June 18th at 8:00AM at the Wrangler Gym in Pinedale, 542 North Street. Many vendors will be on hand at the registration area. Enter drawings, contests and socialize with people of all ages.
Start time is 9:00AM.
This fun, family-friendly event. Unlike other popular color runs, The Color Dash gives back HALF of all profits to our partner charities, as well as 100% of all sponsorships raised. Bring your tennies, laughter, and energy. Start white and get doused with an array of colors at each kilometer. Walk, dash, sprint or Rock ní Roll, whatever your method, just let the color move you. Walkers, runners, and people of all ages, shapes, and sizes will be participating. The Dash isnít competitive or timed, rather it's more about sharing memories, laughing, and putting some color in your life. Feel free to add an extra theme to your team: model some fancy socks, a sparkly tutu, or a homemade costume if you like. Enjoy the music, games, and colors, while supporting the hearts & minds behind Casting For Recovery.
