The Graffiti Run, The Colorful 5K | Fresno, CA | March 1st 2015

Oblivious to Labor Day law, you arrive at the starting line in all the white clothing you can find in your closet: white shirt (mandatory), white shorts (not mandatory, yet encouraged), white socks (are there any other kind?), white cape (yes!), white tuxedo (you should save that for your wedding). In your white duds you take off from the starting line like a pristine canvas, ready to become a beautiful, jogging piece of art. Throughout the course you encounter “Graffiti Zones” where our diabolical team of volunteers, staff, sponsors and leprechauns will douse you with COLOR. First green, then red, then orange, then pink, then purple and then at the finish line a grand finale of color that will leave you feeling (and looking) like you just traveled the most colorful three miles of your life.

The fun doesn’t stop there! After you run our course we reward your fun accomplishment with an awesome Colorful 5k Party! In this party we will have music and dancing, but to make the party truly memorable we will host 4 Color Throws at 9:45, 10:15, 10:30, and 11am. A color throw consists of everyone banding together to throw their colored powder into the air at one time, seeing so much color in the air at once as the color slowly drifts down to douse you is an experience in itself but we want to give you more! In addition to all of our party participants throwing their color, we bust out our “Graffiti Cannons”, these great contraptions shoot tons of color at once making an already colorful day even more so! So come on out to The Graffiti Run, we have color waiting for you!

The Graffiti Run will happily donate a portion of the proceeds to the Monache High School Choir. Here is a message from this talented organization!

“Monache High School proudly offers 7 choral ensembles from novice to advanced. Our choral department has a 45 year tradition of excellence and pride. The students have toured throughout California participating and competing in choral festivals and competitions. Singing in choir not only teaches students basic musical skills, concepts and vocal production technique, but also develops professionalism, self-discipline, teamwork, and an appreciation for the arts. Music enhances exposure to concepts taught in other subject areas including foreign language, history, math, physiology, poetry and literature. These core subjects take on a deeper meaning and have more relevance when used in performance context.

In order to continue teaching this art form to students with the same level of experiences, the department must seek donations each year. Money gained through your generous donations will help the program purchase music, instruments and supplies along with transportation and lodging on choir trips to festivals. We appreciate any donation to our choral program.”

Consider donating to this great cause during registration!
