Soroptimist Club members volunteered at the annual Color Run, also known as “The Happiest 5k on the Planet,” a 5-kilometer race focusing less on speed and more on fun with family and friends.

Thousands of participants were doused in different colors of corn starch at each kilometer.

S club members helped pass out water and cheered on participants as they crossed the finish line.

Junior Neicy-Mae Fujiwara said, “Although we weren’t assigned at a color station, the water station was still fun. It was a great place to help because we were able to see many creative outfits and all of the colorful participants right after they had finished the race. It was great seeing everyone smiling and having a good time with their friends and family.”

After finishing the race, runners took part in the color festival near the main stage area where there was music and more dye packets were passed out, preparing participants for massive color throws. The event saw everyone sprayed with color dye, including volunteers.

Club adviser Randall Fong said, “This was our third year where we have volunteered at the Color Run. This service event is one of our most popular events and students really have fun while earning community service hours.”
