More than 80 come out to run with colors

The Color Dash run started at centennial square/Pastime and ended in the same spot. The goal was to run past the local businesses that sponsored the colors.

Ted Uecker from Uecker yards sponsored the kids race. Eighty-eight people signed up and 86 participated.

The kids race was a little under one mile, and the adult race was a 5K. The event wasn’t timed. It was just a fun walk/run and it  turned out great! Event planners wanted to give a big thank you to the color sponsors and all the volunteers that helped put this event together and the ones that stepped up and helped the day of to make sure everything ran smoothly. To mention a few: Dan Graham, Katie Graham, Patricia Ness, Zeta Drolc, Rochelle Shirek, Katie Shahan, Amber Wolf, and Rhonda Knutson. without their effort this event wouldn’t of been possible. Another thanks to the HOSA kids for serving burgers and brats at the end of the race.
