Hello Purplicious Peeps! Our race is just a few weeks away, and you’re invited to join us for our 3rd annual Purple Dash 5k! We are excited to host the race and hope that you will run, walk and roll with us!
If you haven’t seen our newest announcement – this is the first year that we’ll be handing out finisher’s medals for our participants! The first 200 registered finishers receive a 2.5″ custom medal for participating – all of the medals have the message “Chasing miles for Epilepsy Awareness” engraved on the back. We’re super excited to offer these and hope these will encourage you to come and run with us!
Push to the Finish
We’re proud to partner with Push to the Finish, an organization who provides volunteer runners for children with physical disabilities so they can experience the enjoyment, competition, and sense of accomplishment of participating in a running event. We’re inspired by this group and hope that you will cheer them on at the course!
Show some Waffle Love
We’re excited that Waffle Love will be joining us, and are offering a special Purple Love waffle with blueberries at our event. 10% of proceeds from their sales on November 1 will go to Epilepsy Association of Utah!
About our Event
Our race is scheduled for Saturday, November 1 at 10AM to kick off National Epilepsy Awareness Month (#NEAM). We will join people across the nation who participate in events that raise awareness about epilepsy, encourage healthy lifestyles, and share their stories of living with seizures.
You can follow us on Facebook (/PurpleDash5k) and Twitter (@purpledash5k) for updates. Thanks for being a part of our past events. We welcome feedback any time – please feel free to contact me directly for questions about our event.
