The inaugural Zoe’s Rainbow Dash raised $7,000 for T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. 

Representatives from the color run and several non-profit organizations, including Children’s Hospital, attended a check presentation event at Bar Louie to honor the lives of 10-year-old Zoe Madeline McDonough and her grandmother, Sue McDonough. 

The family-friendly 5K event allowed participants an opportunity to raise money and run for seven charities.  Children’s Hospital proceeds from this year’s event will go towards new patient room renovations.  

“It was a pleasure for Children’s Hospital to be a part of the event,” said Yogi Anderson, major gifts officer for Erlanger Foundations.  “We are so grateful to Zoe and Sue’s family for their enthusiasm and generosity and we most certainly appreciate their supporters for their interest in Children’s Hospital.”
