The “Colors for Kenya” color run was held on May 17, 2014 and there were over 120 runners. The race was organized to raise money for a Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) mission team to travel to Nairobi, Kenya. The mission trip is scheduled to begin on June 5, 2014.
Paul Coogle won the men’s division and Cheerse Rowe was the winner of the women’s division.
