Starting August 17, Color Runners around the country will have the opportunity to not only run in the happiest race ever, but also get involved in the movement to end extreme poverty through GlobalCitizen.org, where they can learn about issues, take actions, and raise funds for non-profits .
Participants start the 5k fun run super clean wearing all white and by the time they reach the finish line they are coated in rainbow color from head-to-toe!
Someone yelled, "GO!" We blasted off running. The cheers and giggles and sheer joy of being painted on a run for a cause were the best way to wake up on a Saturday morning.
