More than 4,000 are expect to bring good vibes to colorful race
Chicago, Ill., April 29, 2015 –The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) announced today that it was selected as the official charity partner for the 2015 Twin Cities Color Vibe 5K run on Saturday, June 20 at the Maplewood Mall in Maplewood, Minn.
“Color Vibe does a terrific job of bringing this noncompetitive race into communities and helping raise awareness of their charity partner among a population of participants whom otherwise may not be connected to the cause,” said Meg Schneider, Chief Advancement Officer, American Brain Tumor Association. “We’re excited to partner with Color Vibe and introduce more individuals and families to the American Brain Tumor Association.”
Color Vibe is a 5K race where participants get covered with vibrant colors made from food-grade quality cornstarch that is non-toxic and has been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. Online registration is open through June 19, and registration for individual runners is $30, and for a team of four or more runners registration is $26 per person. All kids, ages 1 - 12 years old are invited to run free with a paid adult; however, all kids who wish to participate must be registered. Color Vibe recommends wearing white clothing so that colors are more pronounced, and wearing items that participants wish to have colored. A portion of the proceeds from the Twin Cities race will benefit the ABTA. There are limited spots available; to register go to http://www.thecolorvibe.com/twincities.php.
This fall, the ABTA will be hosting its inaugural Twin Cities BT5K race. Runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels are invited to participate in this family-friendly event, one of nine BT5Ks taking place in cities coast to coast. For more information, go to www.BT5K.org.
