ABOUT THE EVENT / What is the 5K Run To Help Children with color and foam?

A 5k run/walk that’s more than just another race. It’s an all out fun and crazy adventure that will leave you looking like a walking piece of art. Run, walk or crawl through this 5k trail course and get doused with paint (colored powder) and foam (like a giant bubble bath) at many of the carefully setup color stations along the path. Spend a fun day with family and friends, while helping a great cause!
