Personnel from High Mesa Dental Arts of White Rock and Los Alamos participated in Sunday’s Colordash in Rio Rancho. Colordash events are taking place across the country and being called the world’s brightest 5K.
At the beginning of each Colordash event, participants are given a packet of colored powder to throw on each other that is a non-toxic, non-irritating, food-grade colored corn-starch. The colored powder gives their white T-shirts a “tie die” effect. During the race, volunteers along the route throw more colors on the participants as they dash by.
Each Colordash event teams up with a different charity or organization to help brighten up the community.
Sunday’s Colordash benefitted the Watermelon Mountain Ranch in Rio Rancho and High Mesa Dental Arts dentists Laura Heisch DDS, David Gartz DDS and Reed Cannon DMD funded their staff’s participation as a donation to benefit the nonprofit organization.
Watermelon Mountain Ranch is a 10-acre facility in Rio Ranch that has become New Mexico’s largest no-kill animal shelter. Watermelon Mountain Ranch offers programs such as humane education, foster care, teens at risk, adoption programs and the ‘Be a Hero to Injured Animals Programs.’ Click here to learn more.
