Color Me Rad to Benefit Special Olympics!
Posted by Kelli Bello on 06/15/2012
The Color Me Rad 5k is coming to the Omaha area at the Mid-America Center on Sunday, July 8 – and it promises to be a RAD event! Instead of running FROM something, brave participants will be running FOR something – Special Olympics, that is!
Hundreds of white t-shirt clad runners will “Chase the Rainbow” as they endure an onslaught of rainbow paint hurdled by eager members of the Color Bomb Squad awaiting at every turn! Proceeds from the race will benefit Special Olympics.
Races begin at 9:00 am, with 4 waves of runners taking off in 5 minute intervals. Leading the waves of runners will be local Special Olympics athletes.
It’s not too late to register for the Color Me Rad 5k, just make sure to use Registration Code “Specialolympics” when signing up. You can sign up at http://www.colormerad.com/races/omahacouncilbluffs.html
