If you haven’t heard of The Color Run yet, you’ve been missing out. Known as “The Happiest 5K on the Planet,” participants in the 5k race are showered with colored powder while they run leaving them looking a little like a Jackson Pollock painting at the finish line. It doesn’t time their runners and there are no winners or losers. While The Color Run is held in many cities all over the world with each one benefits a local non-profit organization, the Atlanta Color Run, held this year at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga, donated its proceeds to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
This year Brenau’s very own Undergraduate Admissions Office formed a Color Run team, Tigers and Tiaras. The team consisted of Admissions Specialists Katie Broccolo, Annie Johnston, Rachel Smith, Holly Stewart and Director of Freshman Recruiting Tiffany Adams. Tigers and Tiaras had a blast walking and running through the various color stations together, leaving with smiles on their faces and covered in vibrant hues.
