Help foster the change you’d like to see

Let's color the streets of Gridley together to raise money for foster children. With our 4th annual Color Family Fun Run/Walk this April you will have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of foster children. Foster children come from very harsh and difficult situations that are not within their control. They feel feelings of hurt, abandonment, and a sense of not belonging. Children's Hope works with foster children to change these negative feelings into feelings of positive growth. The funds from the Color Run help us support our foster children to participate in child and youth friendly programs that help them develop higher self-esteem, motivation, and a sense of acceptance within their peer groups. It helps them understand that their past does not have to define their future. By participating or sponsoring the Color 5k Family Fun Run/Walk you are joining us in making a difference, one child at a time!

What is a COLOR 5K?

The origins of the Color Run tie back to India with their Holi Festival. The Holi Festival is celebrated every year to mark the end of winter and the beginning of Spring. It is a celebration of the victory of good over evil. 

During the COLOR 5K we will have color stations along the course where colored powder will be thrown and sprayed at participants as they run or walk the course. There is also the opportunities for those who do not wish to participate in the event to stand on the sidelines and throw color at their friends and family as they pass by.  This celebratory run collaborates with a final explosion of color as runners/participants are showered with bright colored powder.

This course is moderate & noncompetitive to accommodate people of all ages and abilities.  It is a fun, exciting, and happy time to spend in the company of good people and in support of a worthy cause.
