• What:Color Fun Fest 5k is the child within that most people like to keep hidden. It is that
joyous feeling inside when you let go and really have fun. It’s seizing the day, making a memory,
and smiling uncontrollably.
Derived from the Holi Festival in India, Color Fun Fest celebrates life and seeks to bring people
together. The energy is almost unreal; when you’re standing there with thousands of people,
counting down, and throw that first batch of colored powder into the air… something inside of
you changes. It’s a real release. It’s a release of frustration, a release of anger, a release of any
negativity you may have. Letting it all go. The Holi Festival has roots in ridding oneself of past
errors, and emphasizes forgiveness. Basing Color Fun Fest on these principles, we strive for
Pumping that energy into a 5k run, participants break through the start barrier ready to take on
anything. Electronic music floods the course as it pulsates through speakers, keeping up
stamina. Before you know it, there is a color station with volunteers waiting to throw more color
onto passing runners. Afterward, there is a large festival area for runners to cool down and hang
out. Featuring a local artist, the festival is driven by massive speakers and DJ entertainment,
with a vendor village full of local businesses. Choose from the day run or the night run full of
black lights, and experience something unforgettable.
• Why: Color Fun Fest supports a new nonprofit called Just Care More, whose mission is to
provide underprivileged children the opportunity to better their life through promoting active
lifestyles. How do you change the world? Just care more.
