Color Run Supports Veterans


Patty Schedel

Participants celebrate the grand finale of the color run held Aug. 20.

A total of 165 people took to the streets Aug. 20 to support Veterans and get pelted with bright colored chalk. While the majority of event go-ers wore white T-shirts, some came in flamboyant bright costumes.

This event contains a genuine levity that can be hard to describe with just words. So, I aimed to do it justice with my camera. As I looked for opportune spots for photography, I talked to the paint tossers. It became pretty evident early on that they clearly had the best job out of anyone in town that day. The jovial folks along the last stop at Milk River Activity Center were the most colorfully painted of anyone I encountered that day, and wasted no time covering me with the colorful stuff as I posted up to take pictures.

The event gathered a few more participants than it did last year and raised about $4,000. The Glasgow Student Council, whom organized the event, will be donating the money to Montana Warriors on the Water program. The Warriors on the Water program takes vets fishing. The funds raised by the color run will go towards offsetting the cost of housing the veterans while in Hell Creek this July. I can honestly tell you that next year if you are on the fence as to whether or not to attend, you definitely should. Not only do the proceeds go to a worthy cause, but the experience is an entertaining one.
