Color me for Foster Kids!
5th Annual Color Walk/Run
June 22, 2019
Daddow Park, Gridley, CA
Children’s Hope is proud to announce on June 22, 2019 it will be hosting their 5th annual Color 5K “Color me for Foster Kids!" We serve children newborn to 18 years of age to provide a stable, loving environment for them, and some sense of normalcy amid family crisis. Children in foster care are usually removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect. They are often behind in school, mental development, and social development. Foster children suffer from low self-esteem and feel as they don’t belong. It is our responsibility to ensure that we are able to help them build confidence so they feel accepted.
What is the Color Walk/Run?
The color walk/run douses participants in different colored powder. By the end of the color walk/run you look like a spectacular rainbow. The color run is NOT a timed event. Participants finish at their own leisure. Through out the course there are color stations with volunteers who douse you in more color. Participants will go through 6 color stations with a BIG color throw once all participants have completed the course. Be sure to bring your family friends. While you are having FUN you are also giving hope to foster children.

How your participation makes a difference?
Children’s Hope is a local charitable nonprofit organization that works with over 300 foster children ensuring that their needs are met for them to be socially and academically successful. Throughout the year foster children rely on these funds. The funds raised help cover expenses such as: medical care, immediate crisis counseling, medications not covered by state provided medical care, educational needs, and extracurricular activities. These services help foster children become strong, build resiliency, improve confidence and relationships with their foster families, biological families and their peers. Foster children feel empowered by these services allowing them to strive for a better tomorrow.
