Decatur High School DECA will host 5k Color Dash on Nov. 16

Decatur High School DECA is hosting its first-ever 5-Kilometer Color Dash at 10:30 a.m. around the Decatur campus Nov. 16. The event is open to all ages and participants can run or walk. Powder color packets will be thrown on the runners every 1-kilometer.

The 5K Color Dash registration fee is $25 and includes a white T-shirt to wear the day of the run. All fees are non-refundable. The run will go on rain or shine; however, rain may prevent color from being thrown. Checks should be made out to Decatur High School DECA and can be mailed or delivered to the DHS finance office (2800 S.W. 320th St. Federal Way, WA

98023). Registration will be available until 8 a.m. on the day of the run. Credit card payments can also be called into the Decatur finance office at (253) 945-5222. Prizes will be given to the top male and female who finish the race.

All profits from the race will benefit the Ronald McDonald House and Decatur DECA. The Ronald McDonald organization has made it possible for families to stay with their children while they’re in the hospital or ICU for extensive amounts of time. The organization has ensured comfort for the children and parents knowing they can be together during such a terrifying time.
