Fairmont Freedom 5K won’t take place this year 16 Jun 18

After 5 successful year, the Fairmont Freedom 5K held on July 4th to raise money for Martin County Beyond the Yellow Ribbon will not take place this year. The organization still has not received the fundraising money from the 2017 Freedom 5K. In 2015 the organization turned registrations and operations over to Color Dash, an Owatonna based company. Two weeks after the run in 2017 organizers attempted to contact Color Dash, but received no response. In December the group hired an attorney to send a certified letter and request the funds again. This time the response was that attorney’s for Color Dash are recommending “radio silence.” In February the board decided not to hold the Freedom 5K this year.
