Colors often reflect the mood of the person wearing them; dark blues can imply sadness, bright yellows give a sense of joy, and tie-dye the warning that their 13 personalities are arguing. See the power of color first hand with this Groupon.
- $25 for entry to the The Graffiti Run (up to $50 value)
On Saturday, August 2, runners will gather at Lincoln Park for the annual Graffiti Run. The first wave departs at 9 a.m. with waves following every 15 minutes through 10:30 a.m. Runners will be provided with a white T-shirt, and as they jog the 5K course along Lake Shore Drive, they'll pass through Graffiti Zones in which volunteers and staff will douse them with color. Proceeds from the race benefit local charities, and afterwards, a post-race dance party invites participants to show off their color-drenched clothes.
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.
