Every Color Matters Color Dash 5k

with the Hormel Institute.

50% of the profit from every Color Dash ticket and merchandise sold goes into the community. 40% will go to local cancer organizations and 10% will go to The Hormel Institute in Austin, MN.

The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota is a cancer research institute focusing on discoveries leading to the better understanding of how cancer works and more effective ways of preventing and controlling cancer. Supporting the cutting-edge research of The Hormel Institute will further their world-renowned cancer research discoveries and achievements and ensure their aggressive work continues to move forward in the fight against cancer and toward The Hormel Institute’s mission to accelerate answers to cancer as quickly as possible.

At the end of the day, if all we are is just a fun-run 5k, we aren’t living up to our dream and mission. Every Color Matters is coming to select cities providing a color-filled 5k experience that will thrill the community and create life lasting memories while remembering, fighting and benefiting loved ones in their battle with cancer. 50% of the profit from registrations and merchandise from these events will be used to raise money for charities and organizations around the Globe. The funds raised by Every Color Matters events will specifically benefit cancer-care related organizations, hence celebrating and fighting alongside every ‘color’ of cancer.
