The Color Run Clemson

The Clemson Community Foundation is honored to be the Charitable Partner for this year’s Color Run Clemson on April 25.

The 2014 Color Run Clemson Finish Festival

The 2014 Color Run Clemson Finish Festival

The Color Run, also known as the “Happiest 5K on the Planet,” is a remarkable event created to promote wellness and happiness in communities that has grown substantially since its introduction in 2011 . The race course features stations where Color Runners are sprayed with various colors. After completing the course, participants are treated to a Finish Festival that includes music, dancing, and more color throws. Last year, the Community Foundation provided volunteer support to The Color Run Clemson and received $7,000 for our participation.  This year, with at least 50 volunteers, we project that we can receive $4,000. Money received through initiatives such as The Color Run Clemson will enable us to provide grants and other sponsorships to nonprofit organizations in the area.

You can register for The Color Run Clemson online at sure to use code CCFOUNDATION to get $5 off your registration!

To fulfill our role as the race’s Charitable Partner, volunteers are needed to help with registration and packet pick-up on April 23 and April 24.  Volunteers receive a special t-shirt from The Color Run and food is also provided.  Like the event itself, The Color Run volunteer experience is unlike any other.  It involves minimal labor and offers an enthusiastic atmosphere for Clemson Color Runners and volunteers alike—quite possibly the “Happiest Volunteer Opportunity on the Planet.”
