The Color Run is a 5K, untimed race in which participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. There are only two rules which are easy to follow: 1. Wear white at the starting line 2. Finish plastered in color! This is not a competitive race, but a fun run-walk. It is a great way to be healthy and have fun – there will be music, dancing, stretching and giveaways.
We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.
