ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) -

Community members had the chance to stay active while raising money for a good cause.

The second annual Color Dash was held Saturday in Onalaska. It's a 5K that showers runners with colorful paint.

Funds go towards the YMCA's annual campaign used to help provide financial assistance for memberships and programs.

Participants say it's a good way to get bring people together.

"It's like a really great way to bring the community together. Kids, older adults, everyone of all ages and it's just a lot of fun and it's one of the things that you really don't have to worry about your end time. You just worry about everything else going on in between,” said runner Amber Patterman.

About $14,000 was raised last year among the more than 900 participants. Organizers hope to top both of those marks.
