The Healthy Families Healthy Future program conducts a variety of events in the local community in the name of promoting wellness, and they’re coordinating a “Color Yourself for Health” 5K walk/fun run September 14.

This is the first time for the event, which will be held at SouthFork Creek Golf Course.

Biodegradable paint in chalk form is tossed on participants as they meander through the course; it’s recommended that participants wear white shirts--to better show the colors--and sunglasses to protect eyes from any chalk. Bringing towels, naturally, is also suggested.

All proceeds from this event will go to HF2 for their future community endeavors.
