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 Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska!

When a child is seriously ill, families face extensive medical treatment, hectic schedules and financial burdens. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington and Alaska (RMHC) provides a sanctuary for families during such a difficult time regardless of their financial situations. Each family has a private room and access to a fully equipped kitchen, a well-stocked pantry, and an immediate support system of other families, staff and volunteers. With the support of our community, RMHC can continue to be a home-away-from-home for over 400 families each year.

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.
