The Rainbow Run is a 5k run/walk for acceptance and diversity. Taking place the morning of Ferndale Pride, the run/walk is meant for everyone of all ages who supports diversity and acceptance, everyone who supports anti-bullying programs, and everyone who believes we can not be complete until all persons are included.
Participants will receive white t-shirts* with the Rainbow Run logo to wear (a changing tent will be available for women). As participants pass six different stations along the course, volunteers will throw a different colored non-toxic powdered paint at their shirts. By the end of the race, the t-shirts will be decorated with all six colors providing a colorful reminder of the event. And yes, so will other parts of your body!
A family-friendly event, we also have a 2k kid's run/walk. Strollers are welcome (but no bikes or dogs please).
All proceeds from the event go to four area non-profit organizations:
The Ferndale Area Chamber of Commerce
The Ferndale Community Foundation
Upstander, an anti-bullying program established by the Friendship Circle
Due to the logistics of ordering the powdered paint a month in advance, space is limited to 500 participants, so hurry and register today!
