About This Activity

Love that runner's high? Or maybe you just love your alma mater.  Show that love by taking part in the first ever Neural Activity School Spirit Color Fun Run 5K.  When we say color run, we mean your school colors.  Support your favorite Grand Valley high school by wearing their colors while raising funds for our homegrown teen drug prevention program, Neural Activity!  (There's a battle of the schools going on, the school with the most supporters gets to take home our prestigious trophy!) 

You may also register as a participant for your business or organization. Any business or organization that registers at least one runner/walker will receive a Neural Activity community partner certificate to display in your business. Any business that registers more than 10 runners/walkers will be honored in our October Newsletter (that goes out to thousands of local community members each month!). The business with the most registered runners/walkers will receive a trophy or plaque (your choice).

Money raised goes to help students in the Neural Activity program participate in awesome adventure activities... but they also do great work in our community, educating their peers about what drugs do to the teen brain and showing others a better, drug-free path.  Many of the teens in this program also share their drug prevention message with area middle school students.  This event is student-organized and student-run, let's show our support for their efforts! See their work at www.neuralactivity.org.

Event details and schedule

We'll be pounding the pavement down by the Western Slope Botanical Gardens on Saturday, September 27.  Day-of registration starts at 9 a.m., the run starts at 10 a.m. The cost for day-of registration is $25.

Park at and around the Botanical Gardens, follow signage to the start line. We'll have water and aid stations along the course.


Participants are getting awesome Neural Activity string bags stuffed with fun goodies and deals from area businesses just for registering.  We'll have a prize for the first male and female finishers as well as great door prizes!
