About This Activity

THE COLOR ME UNITED 5K HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO MAY 14TH. HEALTHY KIDS DAY ACTIVITIES WILL TAKE PLACE ON APRIL 30TH AS PLANNED. 

The theme for this year's 5K Color Me United. 
The 5K is a color run event with proceeds benefitting the Oskaloosa chapter of Iowa Reading Corps! It's $25 to run and comes with a LIVE UNITED tshirt. For kids 12 and under, it's just $15. The 5K route runs along the MCRF trail and by the Lacey Rec Complex, and back to the college. 

Registration for the 5K starts at 7:30 AM on May 14th and the 5K starts at 8:30 AM. 
United Way of Mahaska County and the YMCA are coming together again this year to give adults and children a fun and exciting day, all while promoting our healthy living initiatives.
Healthy Kids Day events will be held in the Penn Activity Center from 8:30 am to 11 am on April 30th, and include numerous free kid-friendly activities such as crafts, balloon animals, games, inflatables, community booths, face painting, raffle prizes, and more. Healthy Kids Day is free and open to everyone!
As always, the United Way is truly grateful for the support from our local business leaders, their employees and families.
