M: Welcome back to the show. Now, let’s look at some exciting and creative fundraising events.

First, the Color Run. It’s a five-kilometer paint race which started in 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona. Runners wear white clothes and are covered in different colored paint at each part of the race. The Color Run’s main aim is to raise money for local communities, but it also encourages everyone to enjoy running and promotes the health benefits of sports.

Next, we have the Dance Marathon. One of the first dance marathons took place in Northwestern University, Illinois, in 1975. Every spring, students try to complete a thirty-hour dance marathon. In 2019, NUDM raised more than one point two million dollars to help their local poor and sick students.

Finally, the Charity Dog Wash. The Dog Days of Summer Charity Dog Wash is an annual fundraising event in Beverly, Massachusetts. At this event, volunteers wash dogs for a five-dollar donation. The money goes to support local police dogs. People can also donate chew toys, towels, and pet food to a local animal shelter.

So, those were our top three charity events. Which one is your favorite?
