Annual event raises money for Light a Candle Foundation

MOSCOW, ID - Gritman Medical Center's 2nd Annual Colors of Hope Fun Run is coming up on Saturday, and the organizers are determined to make this year's race bigger and better than the first.

The video footage is from last year's Fun Run, and you will see participants were covered in different colors of food starch by the end of it. The organizers said they're going to use more vibrant colors this year, and the Fun Run will conclude with a mud war.

"More messy equals more fun is our motto," said Light a Candle Foundation Co-Founder Becky Chavez. "The more fun we can have to raise money for a great cause is what we're about."

The event raises money for the Light a Candle Foundation, which helps local cancer patients pay their medical bills. If you'd like to participate, you can sign up online. It costs $30 if you sign up ahead of time and $35 if you sigh up the day of the race. The run starts at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday in the old Tidyman's parking lot in Moscow.
