Color Dash 5k raises money for YMCA programs

Director: Bringing so many people together is a great way to build community

A colorful 5k returned to our area, raising money for a local non-profit.

The YMCA’s Color Dash had participates running through clouds of colored powder Sunday morning. The Color Dash is an annual fundraising event for the Y’s various programs.

Event organizers say bringing so many people together is a great way to build their community.

“We have so many families here, and children, it kind of shows what the Y is about. Just bringing people together, strengthening the community, having all these people from all different areas kind of come together for one fun event,” said the Community Special Events Director Shawn McClone.

This was the 3rd year for the La Crosse area Color Dash.
