Midway, UT (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Thousands of eager people drove up Provo canyon to Midway last Saturday to run the Dirty Dash. This year the Dirty Dash raised funds for Youth Making a Difference, an organization that helps teens learn fundamental skills in developing countries such as India. The teens give service, do research, work in teams, and learn other responsibilities.
The Dirty Dash allows runners to run either a 5k, or a 10k through muddy obstacles. The course is appropriate for all ages, and there is an emphasis on having fun. The race isn’t timed allowing participants to fully enjoy getting muddy.
“It was awesome to participate in the Dirty Dash knowing that it was benefiting YMAD,” said Liz Carson, Human Resource Specialist for NorthStar Alarm. “Knowing that the money that was spent to participate in the Dirty Dash could potentially go to help provide clean and hot water or school materials to the people in India is amazing.”
The Dirty Dash has many locations throughout the U.S.; there are eleven cities where the race is set up. Each Dirty Dash location sponsors a different charity, ranging from cancer research to the Special Olympics.
