Color Me Green


Overview

​​Color Me Green is a Purdue Extension/Indiana 4-H Youth Development sponsored color run being held across Indiana between March - July. As in other color runs that have become popular across the country, runners will be showered with colored powder at various stations along the run. Color Me Green will be using specifically green dyes for the event. The race is untimed and has no winners or prizes—it's all done in the spirit of fun! Come join us at one or more of the County Events listed below!
