To the heart, tick tock, you don’t stop (stop!)… Remember that mantra as you join us in the Color Me Rad Los Angeles 5K race, benefitting the Special Olympics Southern California. Not only is this a good workout for a great cause, it’s also a race through a color minefield! Opening each wave with a giant color bomb and getting showered with colored corn-starch bombs throughout the race ensures you will not be the same person you were when you started. In addition, the first 50 people to sign up with Team LA YMF will get an extra 20% off the normal price!
Find more information on the Color Me Rad LA 5K and how to join Team LA YMF by CLICKING HERE. The event cost will be increasing every few weeks until the event so don’t wait! Contact Matt at
