Redefining the Classroom

In the fight against cancer, these colors run

Posted: November 1st, 2013

MAGIC CURE DUST – Students in Lake Superior State University's sports and events marketing class are sponsoring a self-described "color run" on Nov. 3. Colors for Cancer participants receive an official long sleeve t-shirt that gets dashed with powdered color paint as they walk or run along a five-kilometer course. Each color represents the fight against a distinct form of cancer. No two shirts that complete the course are the same, each a work of art. Colors for Cancer takes place 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at LSSU's Norris Center on Nov 3. Registration is $25 for adults, $20 for people 17 or under, and free for kids younger than seven years. All proceeds will benefit War Memorial Hospital Oncology Dept. and its Road to Recovery Bus, which provides transportation to Eastern U.P. residents who need rides to Petoskey for cancer treatment. Sign up an hour before the race at 10 a.m. in front of Norris, or click here for preregistration and more information. Look for it on Facebook, too. (LSSU/Malloree McLeod)
