$22 for Entry for One to the Graffiti Run ($45 Value)
On January 6, 2013, runners swarm the Peoria Sports Complex for the annual Graffiti Run. Armed with an included T-shirt and color packet, runners dash, dance, prance, and skip along a 5K course with the goal of finishing in the most fun and most colorful way possible. Proceeds from the race go to benefit Special Olympics Arizona. Runners should bring $5 cash for parking.
The Graffiti Run
The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term “run” very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, The Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.
