The Color Course Benefits Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia

Posted in Donate Car News, Tuesday, September 2, 2014

On Saturday, Oct. 25, you have the chance to compete in The Color Course, the first all-terrain 5K which combines color with an exciting obstacle course. Register for this colorful adventure before Oct. 1 and one of the first 2,000 participants will automatically become a member of the Bright 4 Life Founder’s Club, where you will receive 50% off all future Color Course events. Registration is $70 until Oct. 1 and then goes up to $75, so sign up today! 

Run For Wishes

Not only is The Color Course a fun event, but it’s also worthwhile and helps to grant the wishes of children in your community. Proceeds earned from the event benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia and help to grant wishes for kids in Virginia BeachNorfolk, RoanokeNewport News and Chesapeake.

Since the start of the Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia chapter, more than 4,000 children have had their wishes granted. By participating in The Color Course, you can help to grant wishes for even more children! 

If you’re convinced that The Color Course is the event for you, register today and head over to the Colonial Downs in Richmond (10515 Colonial Downs Pkwy, 4) on Saturday, Oct. 25. Waves will begin at 9 a.m. and will continue every 15 minutes. The final wave will start the course at 1 p.m.

What’s In It For You?

Besides a day filled with thrills and a chance to make wishes come true, participants receive an event t-shirt, red sunglasses, and complimentary color. Racers are encouraged to pick up their race packets on the Friday before the race.

Can’t Attend But Still Want To Help Grant Wishes?

If you can’t attend The Color Course or maybe an upcoming Walk For Wishes event would be a better fit for you, you can still help your local Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia. If you have an unwanted vehicle to dispose of, donate it to Wheels For Wishes! Your donation will be recycled or auctioned off and the earned proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia.

When you donate your car to Wheels For Wishes, you receive free pick-up or towing of your vehicle, a great tax deduction, and an easy donation process. Car donation has never been easier – cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, or campers can all be transformed into wishes for local children.

Donate a vehicle today by calling 1-877-431-9474 or by filling out our online donation form.
