Our Owensboro/Daviess County community is fortunate to have numerous organizations to help serve and enhance the quality of life of individuals with special needs, both young and old.  We are proud to present a large scale celebratory fundraising event on March 21, 2015 to support Ability Awareness in our community (March is Disability Awareness month).   There are five local non-profit organizations involved:  Puzzle Pieces, Wendell Foster’s Campus for Developmental Disabilities, Dream Riders of Kentucky, Team Karlie, and Green River Area Down Syndrome Association who are collaborating together to host an event in Downtown Owensboro to honor individuals who have unique qualities and abilities. 

Participants wear anything and everything WHITE and along the run/walk route, participants will be “BLASTED” with a safe and non-toxic COLORED POWDER at each mile marker and the finish line. The color fun continues to the After Party for  music, food, crazy fun, and a group color shower! We are encouraging families, schools, church groups, friends, and business groups to get involved in this non-competitive 5K event to have fun and support a great cause!  

Don’t miss the opportunity to have fun with us!  The proceeds raised will directly benefit the six organizations who are contributing a portion to the WHAS Crusade for Children.  The WHAS Crusade for Children, an organization based at WHAS TV studios in Louisville, KY, raise and distributes millions of dollars in Kentucky and Indiana each year for special needs children; last year they raised and distributed over 5 million dollars.
