Zoe's Rainbow Dash, a family-friendly 5K color run, will be held on Thursday, July 4, at 8 a.m. around the perimeter of Hamilton Place Mall. Partial proceeds from the event will benefit T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
Ten-year-old Zoe Madeline McDonough and her grandmother, Sue McDonough, were killed in a boating accident last summer. Their family created this color run in memory of the two.
Registration for the run is $40 for ages 13 years or older, $25 for children ages 5 to 12 and free for children under 5-years-old. Teams of four or more members will receive a $5 discount off the race registration for each adult team member.
Representatives from Children’s Hospital Foundation are grateful to be a part of this event. When participants register for the run, they can choose to donate their registration fee to Children’s Hospital. Donations will go to the new patient room renovations.
“Funds raised during this event will advance our healing projects and programs and, most importantly, will be giving children the gift of a healthy future,” said Kaitlin Cook, Erlanger Foundations assistant. “We look forward to everyone joining us on Fourth of July to celebrate the beautiful lives of Zoe and Sue.”
