About This Activity

LIVING COLOR LIVING UNITED Sponsored by Community First Bank of the Heartland is a fun run raising awareness and funds for the support of issues in our community.  United Way focuses on improving the education, financial stability and health of the people who live around you!

How does it work? 
This is not a timed race, so as long as you finish before midnight, you should be okay!  Walkers and runners are welcome alike!  LIVING COLOR LIVING UNITED promotes a healthy lifetyle by urging the community and those surrounding to get out, get active and LIVE UNITED.

There will be color stations strategically placed throughout the route where our "Color Station Brigades" will be splashing each participant with color!  (Don't worry, folks!  It's just colored cornstarch!) Each color station is a different color!  We encourage all participants to wear white shirts... it's kind of a dress code requirement!  Don't have a white shirt?  That's okay... we're going to give you a custom race shirt anyway!  Begin with a white shirt, end with a masterpiece!

Come and support your United Way and let's show the world that when we come together, when we LIVE UNITED, the world is just a better (and more colorful!) place to be!
