Color Craze 5K!

FUN and raising money for The Special Olympics is what the Color Craze 5k is all about. The Color Craze 5k is sponsored by Eta Sigma Gamma and Phi Epsilon Sigma at Western Illinois University. The focus is not on speed but fun! At each kilometer a color station will be set up where you will be covered in color. The color is safe, natural and edible!

The Color Craze 5k is April at 10:00 am. The race begins and ends at Vince Grady Field on the Western Illinois Campus and is open to walkers and runners 7 years old and up. Be there at 9:00 am for check-in and registration.
