It's time to dash to the finish! Put on your running shoes for a great cause this March during the 5th Annual St. Patrick's Day Dash - hosted this year on March 14, 2015 in Bend, Oregon. Run, dash, jaunt or jog for a fabulous local organization - the event benefits Kids Center, a non-profit child abuse intervention center that serves all of Central Oregon. Don't have the stamina to keep up with the pack? Don't worry! There's tons of volunteer opportunities to stay involved with the green dashers, and loads of activities to keep everyone entertained! And for those of age (21+) the finish line is worth the effort - end your activity at the Deschutes Brewery & Public House, a local brewery and sponsor of the event. If you think it's just about the race, think again! Each year, hundreds of locals come out to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in their green gear to enjoy fabulous food, fun and festivities. There will be green balloons, bagpipes, facepaint and more - so much so that even your littlest leprechaun will enjoy every minute. Tie up those laces for a gallop that'll lead you straight to victory - or Deschutes, if you'd rather. And don't forget there are also plenty of prizes waiting at the end of the rainbow-from a prize for the best St. Patty's Day costume, to medals for the fastest runners. Get in the spirit and get in your green - it is once again time for the annual St. Patrick's Day Dash in Bend, Oregon.
