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 bothSpecial Olympics Minnesota and the YMCA of The Greater Twin Cities



Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Those activities give them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship.

The YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities has been serving children, individuals and families in St. Paul and Minneapolis for 160 years. At the YMCA, strengthening the foundations of communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility is our cause. Serving our communities until all can thrive at each stage of life is our vision.

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.HCF_SC_Logo_RGB

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.
