Adding a dash of colour

11 Feb 2014

Adding a dash of colour Image

Docklands had a rainbow-hued start to Australia Day when almost 2000 people took part in the MS Colour Dash.

The morning event saw almost 2000 people race around Docklands as they were showered with brightly coloured powders at different stations along the course.

According to event organisers, 1.7 tonnes of coloured powder was thrown throughout the event.

People had travelled from as far away as Echuca, Wangaratta, Drouin, Barwon Heads, Ararat and Lake Charm to take part in the fun run.

As participants crossed the finish line they were handed bags of yellow and green powder to be thrown in a patriotic celebration of Australia Day.

The event was held to raise funds for MS Australia, which supports Australians living with multiple sclerosis

The Docklands MS Colour Dash ran in conjunction with events in New South Wales, Canberra and Tasmania, which combined raised almost $280,000.

Fundraising continues and donations can be made at http://www.mscolourdash.org.au
