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 two charities: Kelleigh’s Cause and Sparrow Foundation


Kelleigh has a rare life threatening and incurable disease known as Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM). Although she has courageously fought this condition since she was first diagnosed at age 4, She is now an active freshman at Lemoyne College in Syracuse New York. Kelleigh has made it her mission to help find a cure for AVM so that others may not have to go through what she has endured. Drawing on her strong faith and commitment of service to others, she has joined with her family and started a charity know as Kelleigh’s Cause. Kelleigh is actively involved in soliciting funds to support medical research that will lead to better treatments or a cure for AVM. She loves to speak to school assemblies or groups of children about her mission and the importance of having strong faith when enduring life’s challenges.



In 1960, hospital and community leaders established the Sparrow Memorial and Endowment Foundation. Known today as the Sparrow Foundation, our organization exists to support the mission of Sparrow: we aim to provide quality, compassionate health care to everyone, every time, regardless of their ability to pay. Funding is provided for equipment, services, facilities, educational programs and research that would otherwise not be possible.


The Color Run is proud to announce a partnership with Huntsman Cancer Foundation and the Sigma Chi International Fraternity to be the generation to end cancer.

The Sigma Chi International Fraternity in the spirit of friendship, justice and learning dedicates it’s philanthropic efforts to Huntsman Cancer Foundation and pledges to be The Generation to End Cancer.  As such the fraternity has made the commitment to raise $10M for this cause.  This is the largest commitment to a philanthropy in the history of men’s fraternities.  Every dollar raised funds research that pursues the most novel and innovative projects with immediate implications in caring for cancer patients.

The Color Run is proud to support Huntsman Cancer Foundation and Sigma Chi on a nationwide scale and to use our events as a platform to support this cause.  There are countless stories with Color Runners across the US and even with our own employees about how we have used this event to find hope, health and happiness in the fight against cancer.  We are thrilled to be a part of this noble pursuit.  To find out more information visit

WOW! I cannot wait until The Color Run comes back to my city. It was seriously the best day. My friends and I had a blast.
My favorite part was the party at the finish line that had super cool photo ops, music, and a beach area with cool vibes!
The Tropicolor zone had big inflatable palm trees! My friends and I had so much fun this year. We love TCR!
The new Tropicolor tour is even better than last year! They had a sandy beach area at the end with huge inflatable beach balls. So fun.
The Color Run Tropicolor Tour is one of the funnest things my family and I have ever done. Very family friendly and super tropical.
