COLOR FUN FEST 5K is an EPIC night/day color fun run that heightens positive emotions by combining a 5k fun run with the energy of electronic dance music, all while coloring the crowd with thousands of pounds of vibrant colored powder. The event is family-friendly, and features a post-run celebration with DJ entertainment. A portion of the proceeds will be benefiting Free Arts for Abused Children, a nonprofit organization that gives children that have suffered adversity a chance to express themselves through art. Bring arts and crafts donations for the kids! The organization will be accepting donations at the event and there will also be a special performance by the children for all attendees. Another organization involved with this event is called Hope Kids, an institution that helps the families of children with life-threatening medical conditions find hope and enjoy life with a loving and supportive community of compassionate people. Sometimes people need a reminder to live every day with a smile on their face, and Hope Kids delivers a vital daily dose of hope.
Who should attend: Whole community- including kids/parents, couples, groups of friends, fitness gurus, dance enthusiasts, runners, joggers, walkers, bloggers, couch potatoes, the young, the old, and basically everyone and anyone that likes to have fun!
