Over the weekend our ortho assistants KP, Nikki, & Holly participated inThe Color Run in Baltimore - a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.
"Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colorsat each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!"
With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
Wear white at the starting line
Finish plastered in color
Now the single largest event series in the nation, The Color Run is exploding since its debut event in January of 2012 and will grow from over 50 events and 600,000 participants in 2012, to over 100 events and over a million participants in 2013.
Here's a vid of the colorful madness in action and be sure to check out the before and after pics of the girls below!
