Last year one of our counselors with Hope for Tomorrow Counseling took a teenager to Roanoke for the Color Run after he had asked if there were any way he could participate in the event. Known as the Happiest 5k race on the planet, the un-timed race held in 35 countries. Participants are covered in different colors from head to toe at each kilometer. The event promotes healthiness and happiness, and raises funds for various charities.
This year 10 of our youth ran in pouring rain, but with no less fun. “It was amazing! I never knew so much fun could be had while drenched and covered in paint,” said one young lady. I just learned the counselor that organized the trip also paid for each one to participate. Now that’s commitment beyond expectations!
