UW Student Group Supports Veterans Through COMBAT Color Run April 22

April 19, 2017

A University of Wyoming student group will celebrate military veterans with a Laramie community event this weekend.

UW’s Students Supporting Veterans (SSV) hosts the seventh COMBAT Color Fun Run Saturday, April 22, at noon at Optimist Park.

COMBAT Color is a 3-mile run or 1.5-mile walk, and game of color tag. Runners are encouraged to wear camouflage and a white shirt to make the color more visible. At the finish line, runners are incited into “battles” with their family and friends. Volunteers along the run route “battle” runners by throwing handfuls of color (cornstarch dyed with food coloring) at runners as they pass. Runners “battle” volunteers by throwing color back.

Pre-registration for the COMBAT Color Fun Run is $30 for adults; $25 for students; $20 for children between ages 10-15; and free for children younger than 10. Registration is available on the day of the event.

Because the event is organized by United States veterans, all proceeds will go to benefit the SSV, the Connor Cloud Scholarship for Veterans and Meghan Gable Scholarship for Involvement.
