All of us at The Hormel Institute and Austin ArtWorks Festival first would like to sincerely thank you for your participation in Austin’s first-ever Color Dash 5K fun run/walk a year ago.

You not only raised awareness and support for our local charities but also hopefully had a great time getting dashed with colors along the way.

We would like to encourage you to sign up for the upcoming 2nd annual Austin Color Dash 5K to support cutting-edge cancer research at The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota and the Austin ArtWorks Festival held annually in August.

This year’s Color Dash begins at 9:00 AM on Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Downtown Power Plant. At Mill Pond, the route will go the reverse direction than last year; there will be a few other changes to the course as well.

Attached is the event poster and here’s the event registration online link:

Please sign up soon – discounts are available to groups and families!

Thank you for your support!
