Color-A-Thon Run & Walk to Benefit Nigra Arts Center

Get ready for a rainbow of colors and fun during a Color-A-Thon Run & Walk on Saturday, July 15, to benefit the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts! The public is invited to participate in and/or sponsor the colorful event, which will take place on the grounds of the center, located at 2736 State Highway 30. Registration will take place 9-10 a.m. and the run/walk begins at 10:30 a.m. Participants will receive a free t-shirt and a color pack as long as they register by July 4.

Throughout the family fun course, runners and walkers will be splashed with washable color dust at “color bomb stations.” The dust is safe, non-toxic and completely washable. The race will not be timed.

Participants will be able to purchase fun items the day of the Color-A-Thon Run & Walk, ranging from sunglasses and socks to rainbow wigs and tutus. Water will be available on site. There will also be food for sale and live entertainment during a Color Blast Party!
