The Arc’s Color Fun Run June 22. 2022 Danner Meadow Park

Charleston, WV,┬áThe Arc of the Three Rivers has announced its first color fun run to take place at Danner Meadow Park in Fort Hill. The Arc’s Color Fun Run will take place on June 25 and will incorporate color, running and walking, and high energy. The run will be similar to other color-themed runs that have taken place throughout Charleston and around the country.

“These runs are enormously popular and extremely fun for everyone,” says Jennifer McCafferty, event organizer for the Arc of the Three Rivers. This event is a fundraiser to support the work that the Arc of the Three Rivers does every day in the disability community around our city.

The Arc’s Color Fun Run will take place on Saturday, June 25, 2022, beginning with check-in at 930am and with the Color Fun Run from 10am to noon. The race will occur at Danner Meadow Park, located in Fort Hill. Participants will create the route wearing a white Color Fun Run T-shirt. A variety of colors will be launched onto runners at each turn, resulting in a colorful display on the runners’ shirts and themselves as they cross the finish line. The “colors” are non-toxic colored corn starch, FDA approved, and perfectly healthy to use.

‘This is not a road race that will be comprised of only serious runners,’ said McCafferty. “The main objective for The Arc’s Color Fun Run is ‘fun.’ People who have done this type of run in the past travel for hours to find them. We are happy to say that Danner Meadow Park will be an amazing location for this event, and we are enthusiastically deep into planning what will be an enjoyable day.”

Registration for the The Arc’s Color Fun Run can be done online at colorfunrun.arcthreerivers.org, or by calling the office at 304.344.3403. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
