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 Colorful 5K – Graffiti Run (up to $50 value)
On Sunday, October 26 runners will gather at the Alliant Energy Center for the annual Colorful 5K – Graffiti Run. The first wave departs at 9 a.m. with waves following every 15 minutes. Armed with a race T-shirt, headband, and color packets, runners dash, dance, prance, and skip along the 5K course with the goal of finishing with the most color on them. Proceeds from the race benefit local charities.
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.
