Charity Highlight

We love chucking paint and making people smile, but we also think it is important to give back. As a for profit company, we are excited we have the opportunity to partner with charities and help shine a light on their extraordinary work within society.

We are thrilled to be working with YMCA of Greater Erie.

A portion of the proceeds from the Color Run will be directed towards the YMCA of Greater Erie’s Wellness for Veterans program at the Downtown Y. More than 5000 veterans in Erie County are currently treated for post-traumatic stress disorder. The Wellness Series for Veterans program provides free wellness programs and Y memberships for veterans to help them deal with anxiety and return back to society.

In 2016, the Y provided 400 monthly memberships to veterans.  82% of participating veterans report having gone from extreme daily anxiety to having moderate daily anxiety.  Vets also ranked their general level of motivation to participate in social activities on a typical day. After three months of Y membership, 74% reported an increased level of motivation to socialize.


Love The Color Run!!!!!!! The most fun you'll ever have "running"!!!
Two words. Unicorn Medal. I am already registered!
The Color Run is when fantasy becomes reality. Dreams will come true.
2017 is going to be even more fun than before! I can't wait until The Color Run hits my city!
I had a blast playing in the foam with my kids - I may have been more excited than they were!
