The Hebrew High School of New England held its inaugural 5K Unity Color Run on June 5 on the Zachs Campus.
With nearly 200 people between runners, walkers and volunteers, it was an amazing event.
“With so much going on around the world that divides us as people, we wanted to create an opportunity to celebrate what unites us,” said Karen Goldberg, chairperson for the event. “It’s was a fun, exciting way to make an important statement and enjoy each other’s company, together as a community. Based on the extremely positive feedback, we are looking forward to building on our success and making the event even more special next year.”
Runners were showered along the course with colored powder made of food-grade corn starch. Participants wore white t-shirts and at the finish line were covered with a multitude of colors representative of the vibrant nature of our diverse Greater Hartford community.
