Let the color move you during the Color Dash 5k event slated for Saturday, May 7, 2016, in Foley.

A family-friendly, untimed 5k, Color Dash welcomes all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities to participate.

Start out wearing white (race organizers provide the T-shirt) and at each kilometer you’ll add blue, green, yellow, orange and pink color to your shirt. The color tends to stay in clothing, but it washes off your skin.

Part of the appeal of this particular race event is the opportunity participants have to give back to the local community. Dashers all across the United States have donated more than $2 million for local causes. Fifty percent of every registration goes back to a local charity.
This event this year will benefit the charitable work of the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce.

Bring mom to the beach for Mother’s Day and participate in this exciting event, which is associated with the 2016 Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival.

A three-bedroom beach condo in Gulf Shores would be a perfect home base to enjoy the balloon festival, Color Dash and a treat mom to a visit to Tanger Outlets.
