Plumas-Sierra 4-H members will host a Color Me Green 5K Run at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy on June 1. The Color Me Green 5K events are 5-kilometer runs designed to encourage youth and community members to increase their physical activity while also having fun!
During each run, participants are showered with colored dye as they pass through each marker point. This run, hosted by 4-H youth members, will be a great opportunity for communities to come together and celebrate healthy living and being physically active.
Through the Color Me Green 5K Run, 4-H youth members will encourage the health of Plumas and Sierra counties. The run is a fundraiser for Plumas-Sierra 4-H and all funds raised go toward supporting the local 4-H camp and club programs.
Since its founding, 4-H has addressed national issues including nutrition, fitness and safety in its programs, as well as social and emotional well-being. 4-H Healthy Living programs encompass a holistic approach that includes healthy eating habits, physical fitness, the capacity to recognize and direct emotions, and the ability to develop and maintain positive social interactions and relationships.
All community members are welcome to participate in this fun and healthy event. Registration is $25, which includes a T-shirt and green dye packet (discounts are available for families). The run starts at 7:45 a.m. at the main entrance to the fairgrounds and afterwards runners are encouraged to stay and enjoy the county picnic.
