Ronald McDonald House Long Branch & New Brunswick Teams up with Color Me Rad 5K Walk/Run

 Color Me Rad 5K comes to the NYC/New Jersey area for the first time in its history, partnering with the Ronald McDonald House Long Branch & New Brunswick on Sunday, July 21st at the Metlife Stadium in New Jersey starting at 8 AM. The event integrates your not so regular charity run/walk with the dousing of colored cornstarch that leaves each participant covered head to toe in different hues of color. A portion of the $55 registration fee will go towards raising money for the Ronald McDonald House Long Branch & New Brunswick.

Inspired by the Holi Festival of India, Color Me Rad is in its second year of turning runners into color revelers. The event is untimed and the focus is purely on fun - fitness is an added bonus. Waves of 1,000 people will take off every five minutes beginning at 8 AM. After completing the 3.1-mile course, runners will declare themselves rad as they toss their own bags of color into the air.  Participants of all ages are welcome to run or walk.

The Ronald McDonald House of New Jersey and New Brunswick provides a supportive environment for families during the time their child is undergoing treatment at a local hospital. Family members can stay together in a comfortable home with private rooms and many amenities, helping them to remain strong throughout the course of their child’s treatment.  It takes $65 to cover the cost of a room per night.  Guests are asked to donate $11 if they can.  The money raised from this event will go towards covering the costs to run the facility.

Registration is available at www.colormerad.com .  Participants must enter the promo code “RMHCGREAT” to donate a 15% of the registration fee to the Ronald McDonald House Long Branch & New Brunswick as well as receive 10% discount off of the registration fee.  For more information about the Ronald McDonald House Long Brand & New Brunswick please visit http://www.rmh-cnj.org/
