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 will 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. Trident Area Agency on Aging’s proceeds will be used to increase services to adults with disabilities in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties.

You can also support the cause by buying some groovy garb at our Hippie Dash Store.  Check it out!
