Honoring the Origins of Colorful Runs
Color Runs have become a popular cultural phenomena across the United States for years, but their origins come from the Hindu tradition of Holi, a celebration of spring and love. This celebration is one of inclusivity and joy. On the day of Holi, people of all cultures, backgrounds, and identities unite in a shared experience of tossing colorful dyes throughout the day. The throwing of the dyes is just one part of the Holi festival, and KYC is proud to add this inclusive and empowering element to this year’s 5K Run/Walk celebration. To learn more about the celebration of Holi, visit https://www.holifestival.org/.
