New this year is the Color Me Rad 5k beginning at 9am on Saturday. Adults and children alike will arrive in white and run or walk through Fondren to be “color bombed” at each kilometer. The non-timed 5k begins in waves. Race director Scott Ward says this will be one giant party with a DJ, Zumba dancers and a T-shirt cannon at the finish line. One thing’s for sure: this will be one of the most colorful things Fondren has ever seen! At press time, the race was almost sold out.
Portions of proceeds benefit Friends of Children’s Hospital. Packet pick-up takes place at Cabot Lodge – Millsaps.
The race is sold out. A number of volunteers are still needed. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0D48A5AD2CA57-color
