The nation's first Wash Me Pink Color Run to benefit Susan G. Komen will be held on March 9. Every runner and walker gets "Washed in Pink" and is for all who wish to participate, slow or fast, young and old, to run it or walk it.
The 5K Color Run course begins at 9 a.m. at 1104 Redwine Cove, Dalton. Check in is from 7-8:45 a.m. Parking Passes are required for each car. Passes are $5 if pre-purchased during registration and $10 at the venue. Save money by pre-purchasing and carpooling. Register early and save. Registration rates will increase on Feb. 1. Register at www.washmepink.com
Color Washers will douse participants with Komen Color at the Color Stations strategically placed throughout the course. The coloring used is non-toxic, non-allergic, medical grade, colored corn-starch. Manufactured in the USA, these clouds of starch will change your color, but not your health.
Proceeds from the Wash Me Pink Color Run will support breast cancer research, screening, education and treatment support services for various breast health programs in the 16 southern Tennessee and North Georgia counties that provide services to at-risk women.
