Color Me Rad Funds Scholarships at Fun Fair

In Color Me Rad, an untimed, five-kilometer race, runners are showered with brightly colored cornstarch and end up looking tie-dyed from head to toe by the finish line. Cofounded by Utah Valley University graduate Matt Ward ’00, Color Me Rad debuted in 2012 at UVU and has been so popular that it is already being run in almost 100 locations across the country. A portion of the proceeds from Color Me Rad goes toward scholarships at UVU, and the race already has netted $30,000 for UVU students.

This year Color Me Rad returns to UVU in conjunction with the Family Fun Fair. (Runners can register at uvualumni.org/colormerad.) But the fun doesn’t stop there. You can sign up to win an iPad Mini at the welcome table, then fill up on UVU-green pancakes for breakfast (free with alumni card or UVID). Take the kids to the Children’s Bicycle Rodeo and sign up for a chance to win a bike. Then entertain them with bounce houses, face painting, and balloon animals.

UVU’s own Green Man Group and dancers from the School of Arts will perform, and the Spirit Squad will hold a cheer clinic. Some of the many displays to visit include the Career Development Center, the UVU Bookstore, the College of Aviation & Public Service, and the Women’s Resource Center. The College of Science & Health is providing health screenings, and prospective students can take a golf-cart tour of campus.


When: Saturday, Sept. 28, 8 a.m.–1 p.m.
Where: Campus parking lots L9 and L10, just west of the McKay Education Center, 950 W 800 S, Orem
