The Color Run

The Color Run logo Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless is the charity partner for a great new event called the Color Run. The event will take place on Sunday, July 15 at the State Fair Grounds. Up to 20,000 runners are expected to participate. It is a wonderful opportunity for our organization to raise money and awareness to a new audience and to support the needs of children, seniors, veterans and working adults who are affected by hunger and homelessness.
