Thousands participate in Color Vibe 5K

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – More than 2,000 runners participated in the Color Vibe 5K Saturday morning at the Memorial Coliseum. Money raised from the run is going towards the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Northern Indiana.

Runners wore white and were hit with colored corn starch at four different color stations throughout the race. The run is based out of Utah and it’s Fort Wayne second year hosting it.

Nate Sorensen, event director for the 5K, said runners enjoyed a color party with a DJ after the run.
