For the 3rd year Puerto Peñasco will host TOMA COLOR. The event will take place April 24 starting at the Plaza of the Governors on the Malecón. Come and join us for a 5K or 10K run or walk.
TOMA COLOR is a race inspired by the Color Run that started in the United States in 2012 and soon spread across the World. This has come as an idea from the Hindu tradition where Spring is celebrated with showers of color upon one another. The promotion of health, happiness and individuality is the main goal of this race.
In 2014 the race was brought to Puerto Peñasco by a civic minded young group of business people with the idea of giving back to the community by raising funds for our local charities. It was a huge success with 800 people registered for the 1st race. Last year we had nearly 1000 runners and walkers. There were people of all ages and even little ones being pushed in strollers by their parents. In 2014 it supported the Hemodialysis Center that received $120,000 pesos to further its’ progress. In 2015 CAM La Montaña received $230,000 pesos for the construction of new bathrooms for the students. CAM la Montana is a school for children with special education needs.
This year we will distribute the funds in a different fashion. Funds that are destined to support Social Projects here in Puerto Peñasco that will make a difference to the well being of our city will be evaluated and chosen by a panel of local business people. If you are a part of a charity that has on going needs, please ask for an application to be submitted to the panel.
With the support of the city of Puerto Peñasco we will embark on our 3rd year of doing this. Again both the 5K and 10K will begin at the Plaza of the Governors on the Malecón. You may pre-register either as an individual or a group between March 9th and April 9th and save money. Between these dates and individual is $250.00 pesos ( $15.00 USD) or for a group of 10 it will be $200.oo pesos ( $12.00 USD) per person. Between the 10th of April and April 19th the cost will be $300.00 pesos ( $ 18.00 USD) per person or $250.00 pesos ($15 USD) per person for a group of 10 or more. You will receive a TOMA COLOR shirt and goodie bag as well as the comradeship of being a part of this great community.
