Wrap Up: The Portland Color Run

Child Aid volunteer, Heather Nicolaides, helped throw color at runners in the Yellow Zone.

Saturday’s Color Run in Portland, Oregon, was a big success! Over 15,000 people, including nearly 100 Child Aid volunteers (Thank you, volunteers!), turned out for the event. Participants young and old ran 5K and got blanketed in brightly colored powder at each of the five Color Zones that were located along the course. A portion of the event’s proceeds were donated to Child Aid by The Color Run. (Thank you, Color Run!) We also had the opportunity to get the word out about Child Aid’s literacy work to thousands of people in Portland, home of Child Aid’s head office. What a weekend. Our thanks go out to everyone who ran, volunteered or otherwise helped make it possible.
