The Color Run with the Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier (MHAST) is less then a month away and here is a way to make a difference and have fun at the same time.

It's happening on Sunday, April 15th at SUNY Broome and it's because of our community that they keep coming back to our area. By Color Run standards, this is a small venue but they are coming back for the 4th year.

With over 2000 runners signed up, this is going to be one fun filled day for everybody. Part of the success of this event is the volunteers and this is where you can come in.

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!! Shifts are available on the SUNY Broome campus before, during and after the event. Go here and sign up for the time that works best for you.

In the past, Dawn and Riley helped and they had such a great time and you will too. If you volunteer, you'll get a free shirt from the Color Run.

If you plan on participating in this wonderful event, you can save $5 off the cost by using the coupon code "MHAST" but you have to act by midnight tonight (3/21.)

New this year is the Hero Zone with double the color in two brand new SUPER Zones. You can suit up in their limited edition participant kit and this year it'll feature a unicorn hero medal, lightning bolt tee and more.

It's the Color Run's seventh anniversary of bringing The Happiest 5k on the Planet to life in over 35 countries, and it's their fourth visit to Binghamton. With your help, this event will continue to grow, so register now.
