More than 6,000 people gathered, bright and early Saturday morning, at the Taylor County Expo Center, to run and get dye-d.

Participants began the 5k race in crisp white clothes, only to get completely covered in dye throughout the course.

The event promotes exercise and, most importantly, forgetting your problems and having fun.

"Run or Dye" is a national event, but it also benefited "Big Brother Big Sister" of Abilene, who say they are thankful to be a part of it.
