Flash Dash Deemed Successful, Fun and Muddy!
More than 225 people of all ages accepted the challenge and participated in the first-ever Flash Dash, a 5k obstacle race on the Kent Salem campus. The event was held to help raise funds and awareness for the Rural Scholars program. Runners and walkers climbed fencing, marched through tires, scaled walls, jumped logs and crawled through a mud pit as hundreds of volunteers and spectators cheered them on. There was also a Kids Zone with face painting, soccer, basketball, flower planting, chalk art and pictures with Flash. Organizers are already planning new obstacles and activities for Flash Dash 2014!
