Mark your calendars for May 3!
The Lyons Community Foundation (LCF) invites you to the Lyons COLORado Fun Run/Walk/Roll. This event will directly benefit the people and organizations of Lyons and our surrounding area, as all monies raised will go directly into the 2020 LCF Grants Fund. This un-timed walk/run/roll will be held from 9am-12pm on SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2020 starting and ending at beautiful Bohn Park.
After a decade of LCF gala fundraisers, it was decided to seek out new events that can engage people of all ages to be silly, get some exercise, meet new friends and raise funds for our community. Meetings about Lyons COLORado Fun Run/Walk/Roll began last spring, we’re working closely with the folks from the Town of Lyons, and momentum is starting to build.
What’s a Color Fun Run exactly? Everyone will get an event t-shirt to wear. There will be 2K and 5K courses, with four stops along the way during which willing participants (runners, walkers, wheelchair racers, strollers) get showered with bright, vibrant powders. The color powders are safe, made from a blend of food grade cornstarch, FD&C approved (food, drug and cosmetic dyes) and baking soda.
This is Lyons…so of course there will be all sorts of live music and entertainment along the routes. When you and your family, friends and team members cross the finish, you’ll find yourself in the middle of a LYONS COLOR Blast that will surely be photo worthy.
The COLOR Fun Planning Committee is actively seeking business sponsorships so that we can keep the registration costs down. An average gala ticket was prohibitive for many locals, particularly families with young children. The goal is to keep our registration cost as low as possible while still being a successful fundraising event.
In early March, look for the event website and a lot more info coming your way. Early-bird registration will go through April 3! For now, please mark your calendars for MAY 3, 9-12 for the best spring kick-off community celebration ever.
