  • Easter Seals of Central California
    Since 1919, Easter Seals has supplied families and individuals with disabilities across the country with the services and resources they need, from physical rehabilitation to job training. In 2003, the nationwide organization established its Walk With Me events, and since then, more than 150,000 people have participated in the annual fundraising effort. That push has helped generate more than $30 million in support of families at Easter Seals. On September 27, the Easter Seals of Central California will host Fresno's leg of Walk With Me at Sierra Vista Mall. There, participants can join the nationwide effort by partaking in a two-mile fun walk or a 5K run. Either way, everyone in attendance can have some fun thanks to interactive activities, food, and a special show starring puppets who aren't yet jaded by Hollywood's glamor. Additionally, a community-wide resource fair will be on hand to promote local organizations and resources that serve special needs families and individuals.

  • Run or Dye
    Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color?which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly named Dye Zone?a polychromatic free-for-all where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by. Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.

Ornate frames and expertly placed lighting draw the eye to each of the mirrors, just as the elegant hairstyles, micro-bead extensions, and protein treatments can add drama to hair as it frames and highlights the face. The opulence of the mirrors is matched by the diversity of the beauty services: nail technicians transform hands with detailed manicure and pedicure services or add sparkle with nail art, rhinestones, or tiny, battery-powered LED signs that flash "I have pretty hands" over and over again.'

  • ElectroDash
    The ElectroDash's organizers score their 5K night runs with the most appropriate soundtrack: electronic dance music. The pulsing beats, which can be heard at runs throughout Canada and the United States, attract runners to tackle the neon-light illuminated course. On the track, a slew of light displays, lasers, fog tunnels, projected images and black lights highlight competitors' eye-dazzling accessories, including neon duds, glow-in-the-dark glasses, and water bottles filled with an excited anglerfish. Though the ElectorDash's main mission is fun, it also champions giving back to the community by donating a portions of the proceeds to support a local charity.

  • The Color Dash
    Though some participants choose to run and others to walk, everybody who participates in the Color Dash experiences a transformation. As participants make their way through the 5K Color Dash and UVSplash courses they are subjected to bursts of color; additional events include the Bubble Bash by Color Dash and Zombies by Color Dash, which adds the undead to the equation. Though the color will wash away, the memories will remain forever in the minds of all participants who aren't goldfish. Proceeds from Color Dash events benefit local children's charities and organizations.

  • Graffiti Run
    The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term “run” very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, the Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.
