We are excited to announce the 2013 Joseph’s Hope Foundation Monster Dash 5K Run and Trick, Treat and Walk a Mile fun walk. There are more than 147 million orphans worldwide, which is the reason for the Monster Dash 5K. Proceeds from the race will be used for orphan care by providing adoption support/financial assistance and meeting needs of domestic and interntional orphanages.
This is a night run/walk. Who’d want anything else for Halloween, right? The first component will feature a 5K run/walk around the course at Kereiakes Park. Spooky, huh? It should be—it’s Halloween! For your safety, the back portion of the course will be lit by luminaries in remembrance of those who dared to brave the Monster Dash but were never seen or heard from again! In all seriousness though, the darker, back portion of the course will indeed be lit by hundreds of glowing luminaries, and there will be safety tents spread throughout the course.
The second component is a fun walk. What’s more fun than getting candy while you walk? This is intended for families to come out and have a fun, safe night. There will be trick-or-treat stations set up and manned by volunteer groups.
Remember, this is a Monster Dash—so what will you be? Costumes are welcome and encouraged, but please make sure they are appropriate to wear around children. After all, children are the main beneficiaries of our event.
The Monster Dash is coming. Are you ready?
