Add a bit of color to your 5k walk
Plantation will get a significant dash of color on Easter Sunday when Westfield Broward teams up with the Color Dash 5K team to raise funds for the Broward Education Foundation at the first ever Color Dash 5K Walk/Fun Run set for 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 27 on Federated Road around Westfield Broward.
“We’re happy to bring this event to Westfield Broward with a DJ providing the musical energy, a fitness guru warming up participants and a dance and costume contest with prizes awarded to the winners,” said Andrew Martineau, Marketing Director, Westfield Broward. “This is a great day to come to the mall, have brunch, catch a movie and do a fun run – all while raising funds for a great cause.”
The Color Dash organization in the region that describes itself as “the world’s brightest 5K” and the group’s events consist of a 5-kilometer – about 3.1 miles – walk or “fun run” for all ages that is not timed and that happens rain or shine.
“At the Broward Education Foundation, we facilitate all donations that support Broward County schools,” said Thomas P. Severino, President/CEO of the Broward Education Foundation. “This is a fun, family-friendly activity and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon while at the same time raising funds that benefit the students, teachers and schools in Broward County.”
With registration, each participant receives one white Color Dash shirt for getting “color blasted” along the course; one color pouch for the end finale; and a Color Dash swag-bag filled with fun Color Dash items.
Participants are encouraged to wear as much white as possible and be creative for a costume contest. After finishing the dash, participants will gather for a Color Dash Finale “Color Explosion”
