Chattanooga’s inaugural Color the Curve, a color race for scoliosis, will be held on June 15. Register by Dec. 31 and use code “BEFORE2013” to receive a 20 percent discount on the registration fee.
CurvyGirlsTennessee, a local scoliosis support group led by Kaitlyn McAfee has teamed up with Scenic City Multisport to bring this event to Chattanooga. The 5K race and 1 mile fun run will take place at Greenway Farms in Hixson.
Participants will show up wearing white – it can be plain old boring white or it can be a creative outfit – whatever it is, don’t expect it to stay white for long. Expect to be tie-dyed. This race is all about having fun. As participants run (or walk) they will encounter color stations along the course. Volunteers, better known as the color crew, will be waiting to bombard with color. Each station will have a different color (yes the color is safe to participants and the environment). By the end of the course racers will be colorful and will have have helped raise money for a cause – scoliosis research.
There will be a color celebration at the finish line.

Scoliosis is the lateral bending and twisting of the spine that, when progressed, causes body deformities and compromises internal organs. It affects seven million people in the U.S., with diagnosis most commonly occurring in pre-adolescence. The disease shows progression 10 times more frequently in girls than boys. Curvy Girls groups provide peer-to-peer and family-to-family support and information.
