Run or Dye 5K

Run or Dye

We have some exciting news...

We’ve partnered with Run or Dye Springfield...and registration is NOW OPEN! It’s happening on Saturday, October 19th, 2013.

Run or Dye is an exciting 5K event where you get blasted with safe, eco-friendly, powdered dye...turning you into a technicolor canvas of fun. Then there's a huge party afterward where you shower your friends in color -- making the event a real once-in-a-lifetime experience.

We are so fortunate to have been chosen as Run or Dye’s Charity of Choice for the Springfield race! In order to receive the proceeds from this event the American Lung Association is responsible for securing 125 volunteers to help with packet pickup (the day before the race) and at the race. The proceeds we receive from the event will help us further our mission by working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through Education, Advocacy, and Research.

We need your help! If you are interested in volunteering for the Run or Dye 5K, click HERE to sign up. Please enter LUNGIL in the Non-profit Reference ID field on the volunteer form to ensure we get full credit for all volunteers helping that day. Please feel free to pass along to your friends, family and col-leagues. Those ages 17 and under may volunteer if accompanied by an adult. Volunteers will be assigned tasks the day of the event. They are fairly simple tasks and will be trained the day of the event. Please come ready to be assigned wherever you’re needed!

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Registration
  • Water Station
  • Dye Station
  • Finish Line
  • Store
  • Volunteer Tent
  • Parking Attendants
  • Starting Line
  • Start Chute
  • Clean up
