Crayons to Classrooms

Join in a colorful and fun-filled day, while helping out a worthwhile cause!  Be prepared to get completely covered in color while walking or running a 3 mile course in Eastwood Metro Park.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit Crayons to Classrooms, so break out that white t-shirt and get your color on!  All ages and runner/walker levels are welcome to participate! This is a family friendly event that will leave you colorful from head to toe!

The Color Bash course will have designated parts of the course for the color zones. At these color zones color-ologists will bombard participants in order to cover them in color. All of the colors are basically food grade cornstarch and are 100% natural and safe to digest, although not recommended.

Multiple Ways to Participate!

Get your move on!  Interested in walking or running the ColorBash5K?  You can run as an individual, or gather a group of friends to run together.  You can find more information here:


Help the run!  Crayons to Classrooms is the Charity Host of this event and we are currently looking for volunteers to help make race day as smooth as possible.  We need volunteers to help set up and take down any tents, tables and chairs, man the water stations throughout the three-mile course, and work the check-in and late registration tables. Volunteer hours will be 7am to 11:30am.  We will meet before the race begins to talk more in depth about volunteer responsibilities.

Eligible teachers may earn a shopping trip by volunteering! Please contact Danielle Dabbs at for more information on this opportunity.

You can sign up to volunteer here – be sure to join the Crayons to Classrooms Volunteer team!
