  • Our youth will play tag and participate in obstacle courses with colored powders (all natural) to win prizes!

As a part of our “Fit & Refreshed: Let’s Move” healthy lifestyle initiative efforts, this community event strives to encourage 'refreshed bodies and minds' aspiring to minimize obesity in Los Angeles. In Los Angeles County, the prevalence of adult obesity increased from 13.6% in 1997 to 22.2% in 2007, while obesity rates among school-aged children increased from 18.9% in 1999 to 23.0% in 2008. (LA County Public Health)

As we have expanded our partnership with Hoover Middle School, we expect to raise funds through activity registration, sponsors, donors, raffles, book sales and auctions, while also being educated on the importance of unity and looking beyond ‘color lines’ through public speakers and our RYC Teen Girls book program’s (LBUSD middle school students) featured novel “The 7 Habits of a Highly Effective Teens“.

Some of our students will be eligible for sponsorship to participate in our events for FREE! The families attending our Youth Color Run are predominantly at-risk and in need of support and programming like ours.

Come out and join us as we celebrate the Long Beach Unified community through art, creativity, healthy fun, and bringing awareness to the importance of getting colorfully dirty and having a good run!
