Wednesday, August 13, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS – Why not plaster your body in an explosion of vibrant color, and help the kids of Christel House at the same time?  The Color in Motion 5k travels to cities all over the country, and its next stop will be Indianapolis on August 23 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

Christel House is the official charity partner for the event. Participants will receive a 20% discount when they register at www.colorinmotion5k.com using the promo code “CHRISTEL.” Each time this code is used to register, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Christel House to help educate, nourish and enrich the lives of impoverished children around the world.

“We are thrilled to be working with Christel House,” said Whitney Vincent, Race Director. “They are a great cause and deserve to be recognized within the community.”

Non-runners can support Christel House by volunteering. Fifty volunteers (age 14+) are needed to blast race participants with colored powder, sell merchandise, clean up after the event and distribute race packets.

Volunteers must register at christelhouse.org/events. Christel House will receive an additional donation based on the number of volunteers.

What is Color in Motion 5k?

Exactly that.... It is your moving body plastered in an explosion of vibrant color with all your friends!

Why not color outside the lines while being active, social, and a little wacky! The Color in Motion 5k gives you all these benefits plus unforgettable fun and heaps of memories! By the end of the CIM5k your blank canvas will be brighter than ever--your clothes, health, and outlook on life will be changed for the better!
