Indiana 4-H is kicking off a new healthy living campaign, which includes a greater focus for 4-H members, families, volunteers, and community members on making healthy choices. The state 4-H is working to rollout updated health and foods project curriculum with a greater emphasis on exercising and cooking healthy.
As part of the kick off for this new initiative, there will be color runs in every county in the state between now and July. The first annual Wabash County color run will be at the Field of Dreams on March 29. Check-in will be between 8-8:45 a.m., with a 1-mile fun run/walk at 9 a.m. and a 5k at 9:30 a.m.
The Color Run is an un-timed race in which participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in green at intervals throughout the race. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
1.Wear white at the starting line (T-shirts provided to those with paid registrations submitted prior to 4 p.m. on March 14.)
2.Finish plastered in color (more specifically 4-H green)!
In addition to a t-shirt, those registered before March 14 at 4 p.m. will receive a pair of sunglasses that they can wear during the event.
