Make-A-Wish® North Texas Set to Benefit from New Wave of 5k

Filed under: Community |

Make-A-Wish North Texas announced as charity partner for the 2012 Color in Motion Dallas 5k Run on November 17, 2012 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas.

Color in Motion 5k has taken the regular 5k run and walk and turned it into a colorful masterpiece. Participants will start out sparkling clean and end covered in color as they are splattered with a rainbow of safe, multi-colored powder. This unconventional fun run brings people that wouldn’t normally enter a race making it fun for the entire family. Nearly 60% of participants admit the Color In Motion run is the first race they’ve ever entered.

It’s more about the fun than the run and on November 17th, many Dallas area “running enthusiasts” will get a chance to also help grant more wishes to children battling life-threatening illnesses in their community. Color In Motion 5k has guaranteed a minimum donation of $5,000 with a portion of each participant registration and a donation for each volunteer who completes a 4 hour shift. Runners and walkers have a blast and volunteers do everything from directing traffic to spreading color.
