4-H Hosts Color Me Green Run

[slideshow_deploy id=’75987′]

The threat of rain and the chill of a storm breeze didn’t dampen the spirit of 61 runners who registered for the 4-H event that helps raise awareness for healthy living and well-being.  On Saturday, March 12, 2016, the Colusa County 4-H held its ‘Color Me Green 5K Run’ in downtown Colusa.

“Maxwell 4-H Member, Sergio Manzano, had seen the event held in another area and wanted to start one here,” said Emily Schoenfelder, 4-H Youth Development Advisor, “so he connected with Colusa County Strength & Conditioning and enlisted their help.”

Erica Eisenhut, co-owner of Colusa County Strength & Conditioning (CCSC) was excited about the opportunity.

“Sergio is a part of our Kids Club here at CCSC and is a big runner,” said Eisenhut, “he is also a big advocate against childhood obesity.”

Eisenhut and Manzano worked together to organize the 3.1-mile event, deemed a wild success.

The Colusa event was patterned after the very popular color runs that occur all over the United States. Participants walked or ran the course set down Main Street and along the Sacramento River Levee in Downtown Colusa. At each mile marker, volunteers showered members with green powdered chalk.

Schoenfelder commented that everyone appeared to have a very good time, and they hope to make this an annual event.
