Mustang Color Run For Emma Grace Madaris Is Saturday

Thursday, September 26, 2013

The Mustang Color Run For Emma Grace Madaris will be held on Saturday at 8 a.m. at Saddle Ridge School.

The Mustang Color Run, known as the Happiest 1 mile run on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and being a Saddle Ridge Mustang.  All proceeds will go to the Madaris family.  Emma, who is four-years-old, has been at Erlanger for over 23 days.

The Mustang Color Run is a one-mile run, un-timed race in which parents, students and teachers are doused from head to toe in different colored paint at turn of the run. Runners will be sent out in waves of 15 at a time.

The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Finish Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations.

Participants wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color. 

Cost is $10 per person, $12 for shirts and $5 for sunglasses.
