Caoimhe Butler, from the Irish Cancer Society, writes:

“The ‘Colour Dash’ 5k is returning to the Phoenix Park in Dublin on July 26 – following a sold-out event last year.The unique 5k ‘dash’ will see participants of all ages running, walking or jogging the course. ‘Dashers’ will start the route wearing a white t-shirt that is quickly transformed into a colourful work of art. At each kilometre, a different colour – representing a different cancer – of powder paint will be thrown at participants, creating a kaleidoscope of colour. 100% of the money raised from the Colour Dash will go towards the Irish Cancer Society’s work to help people reduce their risk of getting cancer, to support those living with cancer and supporting on-going research into better ways to diagnose and treat cancer.”
