A 5K run/walk color celebration to recognize the positive impact individuals with special needs have on our lives, to acknowledge their abilities, and help spread awareness from families to friends to individuals! The event will start and end at English Park in downtown Owensboro, this is also the location of the Colorified After Party!!
The Objective of the Color Blast 5K Event:
Participants wear anything and everything WHITE and along the run/walk route, participants will be “BLASTED” with a safe and non-toxic COLORED POWDER at each mile marker and the finish line. The color fun continues to the After Party for live music, food, crazy fun, and group color showers! We are encouraging families, schools, church groups, friends, and business groups to get involved in this non-competitive 5K event to have fun and support a great cause!
Don’t miss the opportunity to have fun in our Downtown Owensboro area. The proceeds raised will benefit the six organizations who are contributing a portion to the WHAS Crusade for Children. The WHAS Crusade for Children, an organization based at WHAS TV studios in Louisville, KY, raise and distributes millions of dollars in Kentucky and Indiana each year for special needs children; last year they raised and distributed over 5 million dollars.
To ensure your participation in the fun and to receive your free pre-packaged color packet for the After-Party and a free race t-shirt; make sure to pre-register as soon as possible! Write it on the calendar, tie a string on your finger, or set a reminder in your phone whatever you do don’t miss the fun on March 23rd!
