A colorful world for Child Safe


Approximately 250 people participated in the Child Safe of Central Missouri, Inc. 5K Color Dash that began promptly at 9 a.m. Saturday morning on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Child Safe Event Coordinator Karissa Logan said this was the second year for the fundraising event that drew 210 people last year. They plan to host another Color Run next year she noted. “We have 35 local volunteers,” she added. “I couldn’t be more happy with that.”

After all the runners crossed the finish line, Color Dash Representative Cody Sprock, of Columbia, left, invited the participants to gather around for the Color Explosion. Sprock said he brought 200 pounds of colored starch for the run. “In addition to that we have 250 hand packets and some people bought extra,” he added.
