I mostly post events that target teens and young adults or are for a good cause!

Historically, running has only been acceptable when trying to escape the law, personal responsibility, the truth, and grizzly bears.
What does the Color Me Rad 5k Race mean for Yuma?
It’s basically just a fun race where 5,000 pounds of non-toxic, food-grade corn starch powder will get thrown at you (not all at once) at check points. All profits for the Yuma version of this race will be contributed to the Yuma Diabetes Coalition. The race will be held at Gateway Park on April 6th and the first wave starts at 9 AM.

Color Me Rad happened today and it was a fun event! No one left unscathed (my own pants were filled with dye and I’m pretty sure I was eating it too) and all runners looked like they had accomplished something really big. Which they should be proud of. Not only were they running for their own goals but all proceeds will go to the Yuma Coalition for Diabetes.
