This color run helps raise money for many of the programs that H.O.P.E. has to offer for the community. Lyndon State College will be providing the color that gets thrown at the runners as the run around the Steven's Loop. The color run is seen as an event that often has a positive impact in the community as it gets the community together and helps community members who are struggling in one way or another.

"I'm passionate about helping people and seeing the amount of people that come out to this and show their support for H.O.P.E. is unlike any other event that I've seen personally it's really great to see it, " said volunteer Dan Haycook.

Some of the programs that the run benefits are the backpack program, the Christmas program, the food shelf, home starter packages, and the fire starter program. All of these programs help families in need one way or another.

"This run means a lot to us we do everything that we possibly can to try and help the most vulnerable people in our community and that takes a lot of resources, a lot of time a lot of money and to have an event like the color run and to see how many people come out to support us really means a lot because it allows us to do what we do each and every day, said Haycook."

The run starts at 10:30 am followed by a color dance and food.
