Fund-raiser to offer colorful, healthy experience

Participants will be periodically dusted with tinted powder

Screen Shot 2014-04-03 at 9.18.49 PMBrandywine Hospital and the United Way of Chester County want to add some vibrant hues to area residents’ lives.

On Sunday, May 4, the public is invited to participate in “Live United in Color,” an unconventional, untimed 5K run/walk fund-raiser. It is designed to generate fun, raise money for needed community programs, and promote healthful activity.

About every kilometer, participants will be playfully doused with a colored powder – a nontoxic, biodegradable cornstarch-based powder – in a fanciful, friendly atmosphere. Participants will be asked to wear white in preparation for a 5K like no other.

Registration is limited, and the race is expected to sell out quickly. It will be held at 2 p.m. in Caln Township Park on G.O. Carlson Boulevard in Thorndale.

For more information or to register, visit, email Christopher Saello at, or call 610-429-9400.

Kids are welcome, but for the participants’ safety, dogs, bikes, skateboards and strollers are prohibited on the racecourse. There is no age limit for younger or older runners; however, due to time restraints, the 5k course is recommended for runners/walkers who are 10 years or older. There will be markers for a shorter course for those participants who cannot complete the course in its entirety.
