The Glitter Dash 5K

The Glitter Dash 5K created in honor of Julia Zamon, who sacrificed her life on March 27, 2017, when she stopped to render aid to a stranger in need.

This race and everything that glitters is a reminder of Julia, and the many others who stop; and those who does something good for others.

  • 100% of the net profits of The Glitter Dash are funneled right back into the community, and to organizations that live by the legacy that Julia left - those who are committed to doing good.

Take a second and watch the videos below and see how Julia's story continues to impact many lives! Then, go out and do something good.
