Run To Help The Kids In Color Blaze 5k This Weekend
You can get covered in color this weekend while helping out a good cause!
LeClaire will be the site of the Color Blaze 5k on Saturday. The race kicks off at 8:00 a.m. and will be launching in waves. You can run or walk the distance but you will definitely get colorful. With registration, you will get an individual color packet (which you can throw on yourself or at the finish line), along with a teeshirt, and a grab bag containing different stuff. However, since it's so close to race time, you might find teeshirt sizes to be limited now.
There are no age restrictions for the race and it is not timed. You can put on a tutu and do a leisurely stroll through LeClaire, as long as you don't mind getting colorful. The race will be at 201 North 6th Street in LeClaire.
The event is for a good cause too. All proceeds from the Color Blaze 5k will go to the Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City. The event's website says:
The money donated will be used to bring us closer to the end of childhood cancer. We run for a day to give them hope for a lifetime.
If you're ready to run (or at least get colorful and messy) you can sign up for the Color Blaze 5k here. There's a $30 race fee. If you have any questions about the event, you can reach out to them on the Questions form on their website.
