Color fun Fest 5k brings EPIC fun run to Phoenix on March 15!!!
What: Color Fun Fest 5k is the child within that
most people like to keep hidden. It is the that joyous feeling inside when you
let go and really have fun. Its seizing the day, making a memory, and smiling
Derived from the
Holi Festival in India, Color Fun Fest celebrates life and seeks to bring
people together. The energy is almost unreal; when youre standing there with
thousands of people, counting down, and throw that first batch of colored
powder into the air something inside of you changes. Its a real release. Its
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 ultimate positivity.
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: 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.
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!
