Linden Youth Council to sponsor Color Run 5K July 11

The Linden Youth Council would like to invite the community to The Color Run 5K and Summer Splash on Saturday, July 11, 2015.

Summer Splash is free and we welcome everyone in the community to join us for the festivities. If you would like to run in the Color Run, you can register by calling 256-656-2823.

The registration fee will be $12 which includes a souvenir T-shirt.

Linden Youth Council is an organization composed of local high school students from Linden High School and Marengo Academy. As leaders in their schools, the students are working together to become leaders in our community. Amy Hudson, an intern of Auburn University’s Living Democracy program, has organized the Linden Youth Council. Through the Linden Youth Council, students hope to learn leadership skills as we organize two community events, The Color Run 5K and Summer Splash.

Both events will provide a positive environment for developing youth and strengthening families. The goal of these events are to unite the community, instill community pride, and promote wellness.

The Color Run 5k will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday morning, July 11. It will be a fun and colorful way to exercise and socialize with family, friends, and fellow citizens. Organizers know how hot a summer day in lower Alabama can be; therefore the Summer Splash will take place from 11-4 at Forest Hill Baptist Church following the run.

Water activities will be available for all ages to enjoy and cool off. Bring a swimsuit, towel, snack, sunscreen, and a friend for the ultimate community gathering. Hope to see you there!
