The dust, the balloons, the race and the support for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). This Saturday, CASA will be sponsoring the Amanda Fussell Woodman Color Run 5K at Trinity’s Cross Country track. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. and the race begins at 9.

A color run features the runners being plastered with colorful dust along the track. The white T-Shirts become colorful creations. The race begins with each participant throwing a bag of color dust into the air.

But don’t worry because the color is made from cornstarch. What participants do need to be worried about is that they are helping a wonderful cause.

“I think [CASA] is a great cause,” freshman Anna Katherine Jordan said. “Because it helps underprivileged kids find foster homes.”

This program was loved by Amanda Woodman, and she was constantly volunteering to help in whatever way she could.

“[Woodman’s] main focus was fundraising, [and this event] brings so much money into CASA,” Jordan said. “[Woodman loved] just helping the little people that didn’t have a voice.”
