Everyone had a totally awesome time at the Awesome 80’s Color Me Run in support of women’s mental health.

“The turnout was amazing. We had over 340 registrants and over 300 people on the race day,” says Jacki Freamo, who helped organize the event.

“It was an amazing event. It went way better then we ever could have imagined. No hickups, nothing went wrong. It was a perfect day.”

The event was hosted by Nampa Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) and sponsored by Northern Sunrise County and Shoppers Drug Mart in Peace River, Mercer Peace River, and many other local companies. Some 50 people volunteered to help make the run happen.

The run was held at the Peace River agriculture grounds on May 25 and included five different color stations along a five kilometre route where participants got doused in bright colors.

There was also one kilometre Fun Run for children ages six and under.

To keep everyone’s energy up, a DJ spun dance tunes, and participants received light refreshments and a free t-shirt and other swag.

All proceeds were donated to the Peace River Regional Women’s Shelter.
