Description
Color Me Rad Calgary takes place on June 29th at Canada Olympic Park benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

Just like at Christmas and birthdays, 'tis better to give than receive... right? I know that's a hard one to swallow for 8 year olds, but in this case, it might be true. If you want to pummel your friends and family with color rather than be pummeled this is your chance!!

Anyone that volunteers for the packet pickup shifts can run the race for free!!
***MUST BE 14 YEARS OLD TO VOLUNTEER***
Requirements
Have fun!

What a blast, good "dirty" fun held in the sun. Thanks to all those volunteers i was able to work with and those that shepherded us through it. (Alex, Cydney, Nate, Kalib, ...).
To all of those participants who showed up with such energy for a great cause , who took "color bombs" and gave "color bombs",what a lovely "family" picture you will make.
Remember, there is healthy rubbing to clean it off and then there is just messing around.

Hi Everyone, I'm looking for a ride to the Olympic park on my volunteering shift date. I'm signed up for the Packet Pickup on Wednesday (June 26) for 2:30-7:30pm. If anyone will be leaving from downtown to there, could you please let me know? Much appreciated!!

I have already messaged Alex, that I am going to have to give up my Race Day position to color bomb people, so if anybody would like it - feel free to message him asap!

Hi Everyone,

I signed up for a package handout shift on Thursday June 27th (morning shift) and I only now realized that it conflicts with another commitment I've made. I was wondering if anyone signed up on the 26th (Wednesday) or 28th (Friday) for the morning shift would like to switch with me?

Thanks!
Kelsey

Just registered to volunteer at this year's Color Me Rad 5K on June 28th and 30th. Part of the fun is color bombing the runners, how much fun is that?! Volunteer and runner spaces are filling up quick so go online and register.

So excited to be involved in this race!

Do the Race day Volunteers get to color bomb the racers? Is packet pickup just transporting packets?
