Roxbury Color Fun Run

Roxbury Color Fun Run

You are invited to the Roxbury Rotary Club's 5th Annual Color Fun Run on May 20th, 2018!

With the assistance of the Roxbury High School's Interact Club, we have raised a total of $62,000 for local families. Mike Corrente and Joey Clayton have both been recipients of the proceeds raised during the Color Fun Run. Both families were dealing with the financial stress of cancer treatments and we were so happy to do what we could to ease their financial burden.

People come from all over the country to participate in this event. It is a great way to stay in shape, raise money for a community member/family in need, and have a great time on a beautiful summer day! There will be a DJ, sandwiches, ice cream and more! The 2018 Color Fun Run will have a special musical performance by the group Found Vegas, an alternative music group from Essex County.

The proceeds of this year's Color Fun Run will be raised in honor of Matt Adonis, a 4th grader at Nixon Elementary School who was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. Please visit the Eventbrite registration website for Matt's complete story. We are happy to join Team Matt!

If you purchase tickets in advance, they are $25. Tickets will be $30 the day of the event. Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the Color Fun Run will begin at 10 a.m. The first 400 people to register will receive a t-shirt! As of May 1st, registration will also be available at the Roxbury Recreation Department. We hope to see you there!

We are also looking for parent volunteers to throw powder. If you are interested, please sign up at:
