Mental Health America of Greenville County is excited to host its third annual Colors 4 Hope walk/run event on Saturday, March 21, 2015 in Travelers Rest's Trailblazer Park.

The family-style event has been designed for individuals of all ages and athletic abilities and promises a fun filled morning for runners and families alike! We use the numeral 4 in "Colors 4 Hope" to help raise awareness that mental illness affects one in four Americans. One in four means that mental illness isn't just something that happens to people we don't know.

It affects people we know and love. Mental Health America of Greenville County asks, "Who's your 1 in 4?" Because it's not one in four of them; it's one in four of US.

The race will begin and end at Trailblazer Park in Travelers Rest and will follow a route that includes part of the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Participants will pass through "color stations" along the route, where MHAGC volunteers will be tossing a kaleidoscope of colored powders into the air. Runners and walkers will end the race in a blaze of color—on their faces, their shirts, their legs, and in their smiles! But don't worry, it comes out in the wash! (But you may want to bring a towel to protect your car seat on the ride home.) Race day registration will open at 7:00 a.m. The race is scheduled to commence at 8:30 a.m. Cost to register on race day is $50 per adult and $30 for students and children. Register before race day and the cost is $40 for adults and $20 for students and children. Participants who register will receive a race day packet, tee shirt, and bib. Participants have the choice of running in honor or memory of someone and raising additional funds to be donated to MHAGC.
