Tahoe Youth & Family Services (TYFS) is hosting its annual Colorblast! 5k color run fundraiser on Saturday August 19th.
Unlike other 5k runs, COLORBLAST! runners get covered from head to toe in different corn starch based (totally safe and edible) colors at each kilometer. Each section of the run adds a new layer of color to the runner’s clean clothes, hair, and skin until they cross the finish line in a final colorful explosion. The race is non-competitive and runners from all ages and ability levels are encouraged to participate.
The race will begin at 9am in the Carson Valley Medical Center parking lot at 1107 Highway 395 North in Gardnerville. Prices are $40 for Adult, $30 for Teens 11-17, and children 10 and under are FREE! Registration also includes a T-shirt! All proceeds from the race will go to support the local programs of Tahoe Youth & Family Services.
Carson Valley Medical Center Health Fest 2017 runs from 8:30am to 12pm and will feature free health screenings and assessments, valuable health and wellness resources, free activities for kids, food, music and great raffle prizes.
