ColorDash 5K - June 3, 2017 

Benefitting Kennebec Valley Chamber & Augusta Downtown Alliance 

Race Start: 8:30am - Packet Pick up: 7:00am

The Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce and Augusta Downtown Alliance are proud to join together to bring The Color Dash to downtown Augusta. Both organizations endeavor to invest in community growth and development in the Kennebec Valley by supporting their local businesses.
 
The vision is to have 800 dashers running through historic downtown Augusta and exposing them to the many businesses in the area. Total funds raised will be used to offer resources to the business leaders both in downtown Augusta and throughout the Kennebec Valley. They do this through promotion, educational seminars, community events, and by offering networking opportunities. The businesses that are a part of KVCC and the ADA are key players in our local economy – by supporting them we are providing a future for our community. We strive to paint a positive picture of Augusta and the Kennebec Valley by bringing dashers into our community and letting them experience all we have to offer.

2017 Southern Maine AIDS Walk/5K Run

Saturday, May 6th - Ogunqut Beach

Registration/Check in: 1pm  - Entry Fee: $35

Race: 2pm  

Welcome to the Southern Maine AIDS Walk / 5K Run!  For it's ninth year, we're reaching even higher, aiming to raise $115,000 for HIV/AIDS services in Maine.  Your support is more important than ever - providing critical direct services to over 400 people in Maine living with HIV/AIDS, in addition to those at risk.

Registration includes refreshments and snacks before the Walk.  

Participants will receive event t-shirt & goodie bag.

As Frannie Pbeaody's Center's largest annual fundaiser, the Southern Maine AIDS Walk/5K Run unites the community in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Every year, over 300 participants make their way to Ogunquit Beach for the culmination of their fundraising efforts.

With over 40 community sponsors and more than 1,000 donors, the event raises over $100,000 in support of people in Maine living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS. 

Since 2009, The Southern Maine AIDS Walk/5K run has not only raised critical funding and awareness, but also brought people together in support of one another. Many people choose to walk in memory of a loved one they have lost to AIDS, in honor of a friend still fighting or as a way to educate their children about an important issue that affects our community. Whatever your motivation, we hope you will join us in May for a fantastic event fueled by love and support.
