Join us for Upper Merion MiniTHON’s third annual Color Run on APRIL 5! The run is held at Gulph Elementary and the surrounding Baxter Fields. Check in begins at 9:00am where sunglasses, color bags, and t-shirts (if registered by 3/13) will be handed out. The race begins at 10:00am. There will be a final color toss after the last runner crosses the finish line, which will take place around 11:00am.
Register by Friday, March 13 to receive a t-shirt. Registrations received after this deadline will not be guaranteed a t-shirt. The price also increases after the first deadline. We will allow sign ups the day of the race, but you will not be guaranteed a t-shirt or the sunglasses.
The race is open to anyone, and we welcome you to invite your friends and family! Children 5 and under are free, but they will not recieve a t-shirt. Processing fees are paid per transaction, not per runner. I would encourage you to sign up multiple people at once to save on these fees!
All of the money raised goes towards Upper Merion High School’s MiniTHON, which is a six hour dance event on Friday, April 17 from 4:30-10:30pm. All of the money raised during the event helps children conquer pediatric cancer. The money goes to the Four Diamonds Fund, which supports breakthrough research and ensures that no family has to pay a single bill for their child’s treatment. For more information about MiniTHON visit, https://fourdiamonds.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.event&eventID=2630. At last year’s MiniTHON, we raised over $31,000!
For High Schoolers that participate in MiniTHON, the Color Run is now a part of competition between grades! If your grade has the most amount of students that cross the finish line, you will come in 1st in the “Color Run” portion of the competition. Get your friends to sign up and get a head start on the event even before MiniTHON starts!
More information will be sent to you via email once you sign up, please keep an eye out as we near the race date.
