About This Activity

     On April 11, 2015, Freedom Park will host a color run in Eden to benefit Camp Carefree in Stokesdale, NC. It will be the second color run event that has been held in this area. The Eden Youth Council is planning and sponsoring this run. All profits from Color Me Carefree will benefit the many needs of this unique local camp one being the pressing need for maintenance and repairs.

     Camp Carefree provides a free, one week summer camp experience for kids with chronic illnesses. Their program also includes week long camps for well siblings of ill children and another for well children of an ill parent. The camp provides a retreat for many of the campers away from their regular activities to just be a kid and truly carefree. Camp Carefree encourages friendships and personal growth along with learning from others who have similar disabilities.

Event details and schedule

On the day of the race, do not forget to wear your white t-shirt, bring your color packet, and bib. You may pick all of it up on race day if you do not get it before.

Registration begins at 8am.

Race will start promptly at 9am.

What to wear: The color can be messy and it will get on your clothes. It would be best to wear something you do not mind getting a little stained. The color should wash out, but it is hard to get out of tennis shoes.
