The Hippie Dash 5K

Sponsored by Palmetto Goodwill and Trident Area Agency on Aging

Saturday, March 9, 2019 | James Island County Park


The Hippie Dash is a 5K fun run/walk that raises awareness and funding for people with disabilities. Far out dudes, hip chicks, flower children and funky fidos are invited to don their best 70s attire as they move and groove their way through a psychedelic 3.1 mile course around James Island County Park. Runners, walkers, children and pups of all ages are encouraged to participate. The Hippie Dash is all about fun, friendship and supporting a good cause.

Proceeds from the 2019 event help Palmetto Goodwill increase advocacy efforts to evoke change by spreading awareness regarding issues that people with disabilities face on a daily basis – including transportation, housing and employment – and help Trident Area Agency on Aging to serve the needs of adults with disabilities in the Tri-County area.
