Sign Up for the Color Run!

Thursday, April 18, 2013



Happy Thursday, my friends!  I want to tell you about a fabulous event called The Color Run, which will be happening May 4th at Frontier Field in Rochester.

Unfamiliar with the Color Run? Here are some details:


"The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.
Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!
With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
  1. Wear white at the starting line
  2. Finish plastered in color



This special 5K run/walk benefits Teens Living with Cancer.  Here is some info about the organization from the Color Run website:

"Teens Living with Cancer (TLC) is the peer support program of Melissa’s Living Legacy Teen Cancer Foundation. Founded in 2001, the organization was one mom’s answer to a challenge posed by her 19 year-old daughter days before she died.  Asked to use what she had learned “to make a difference – to make things better”, founder Lauren Spiker established the non-profit with a mission to help teens live their best lives during and after cancer. The small grassroots organization, now a nationally respected provider of psychosocial support for teens with cancer, has TLC chapters in Rochester and Buffalo, NY."
