The Color Blast 5K is a run/walk color celebration to recognize the positive impact individuals with special needs have on our lives, to acknowledge their abilities, and help spread awareness!
The Color Blast 5K is brought to you by five Owensboro non-profits: Puzzle Pieces, GRADSA, Dream Riders of KY, Team Karlie and Wendell Foster’s Campus, whose common mission is to support and enhance the quality of life of those with disabilities.
Participants wear white and will be showered with a safe and non-toxic COLORED POWDER at each mile marker. The color fun continues to the After Party involving a color shower as a group.
Over 3,000 participants ran or walked the 5K in 2015.
