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 The Chill Foundation, HELP International, and SoulFood USA!

slc-black-logoChill is a nonprofit youth development program started by Jake and Donna Carpenter of Burton Snowboards in Burlington, Vermont in 1995. Chill’s mission is to provide opportunities for underserved youth to build self-esteem and life skills through snowboarding and other board sports. In 2003, the Chill Salt Lake City program was established and has been serving greater Salt Lake Valley youth ever since. For more information or to get involved please visit our website (


unnamedThe mission of HELP International is to empower people to fight global poverty through sustainable, life-changing development programs. HELP International aims to assist relatively inexperienced and mostly academically trained participants to become social entrepreneurs who understand the complexities of poverty and play an active role in efforts to improve the quality of life of some of the most vulnerable populations in the world.


Logonoline-01[1]Every other week volunteers from Soul Food USA make over 375 sandwiches and deliver them in person, along with bottles of water, clothing donations, and other supplies, to people living on the streets and in the homeless shelters of Salt Lake City, Utah. We believe that handing a person a sandwich, along with a handshake or hug, can do more than just feed their body for a few hours…it can feed their soul.

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

HCF_SC_Logo_RGBThe 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.
