    Runners, joggers and walkers will wind their way through Mount Ida Saturday as the Montgomery County 4-H Clubs present the 4-H Color Splash 5K and Kids Dash.
    The Color Splash 5K and Kids Dash will wind its way through the streets of Mount Ida as volunteers shower participants with colored powder.
    The event is meant to promote fun and exercise in the community and the local 4-Hers encourage everyone to dress up in their wackiest and most colorful costumes for the event. Participants can sign up individually, or as a team.
    County Extension Agent Amy Monk stated that they are asking local businesses and groups to register as a team and compete. The largest team and the best dressed team will receive gift certificates from local eating establishments.
    Registration for the Splash and Dash will begin at 8 a.m. that morning. The Kids Dash will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the 5K will kick off at 9 a.m.
    The event is one of two big fundraisers for the local 4-H clubs and is crucial to their success in our community.
