The Hippie Dash is a 5k fun run/walk that raises awareness and funding for people with disabilities and helps support Palmetto Goodwill's work to change lives through education, training and employment.

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. Don't forget to channel your inner Flower Power and put on those threads, man. You may just win a prize!  The Hippie Dash is all about fun, friendship and supporting a good cause. Proceeds from the Hippie Dash will increase awareness and funding for services to people with disabilities through the programs of Palmetto Goodwill.
