Colorful run makes for fun
More than 12,000 walkers and runners showed up Saturday for the Run or Dye 5K at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds. Participants enjoyed a colorful good time, all the while making for an almost record breaking event in terms of numbers, coming in only second in attendance to the San Diego Run or Dye race. The event is unique in that colors are key -- with pink, purple, yellow, green, blue, red packets flying everywhere. The YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties partnered with Run or Dye officials to host the event, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the YMCA's Livestrong program.
