Rio Salado College’s National Division is hosting its second annual Dash with Splash 5K Run/Walk at Arizona Falls Park in Phoenix on Saturday, April 4, 2020. Proceeds from the event will fund Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation scholarships for students in need.

This family and pet-friendly 5K is for competitive runners and strollers alike. All ages and ability levels are welcome.

“This fun-filled event gives us a chance to connect with employees, students and the communities we serve in a beautiful setting– while we raise scholarship funds for students who are dealing with financial hardships,” said Rio Salado Interim President Kate Smith. “It also gives us a chance to make connections with people who are not familiar with our college, online learning, and the services we offer to help students fulfill their educational goals.” 

Rio Salado College’s mascot Splash will be joining President Smith to kick off the race and cheer on participants as they cross the finish line. 

Awards and Prizes. All participants will receive a custom medal and t-shirt. The race is chip timed with age group awards in 14 categories and includes a free raffle drawing. Water, snacks and popsicles will be provided. Shirt sizes are not guaranteed for registrations received after March 20.
