Splash ‘n’ Dash 5K: Help kids who need care

The third annual Norton Children’s Hospital Splash ‘n’ Dash 5k Walk/Run will be held Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, at a new location: the Big Four Lawn at Louisville Waterfront Park.

The new location will offer more space for splash-tastic water obstacles and more fun for the whole family — all while benefiting a great cause!

Runners and walkers can choose to splash their way through a 5k course or a 1k family fun run filled with refreshing ways to cool off in splash zones. After the race, enjoy family-friendly activities in the “Just for Kids” Zone, presented by Hwang’s Martial Arts. There will be a DJ, face painting, water balloon toss, water slides and more! Food and beverages also will be available for purchase.

The 1k course is kid-friendly, with water obstacles designed for families and children. Dress to make a splash — you will get wet!

The 5k course has staggered start times based on fitness level. Strollers are welcome on the course as well. 5k registration is $30 for adults and $15 for children 17 and younger. 1k registration is $20 for adults and $15 for children 17 and younger.

All registered participants will receive an official 2017 Splash ‘n’ Dash T-shirt and a personal fundraising page.
