How much does the Color Run really give
company conducted the Asheville Color Run this year, New Balance Minimus 10v4 and they listed the YMCA and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation as beneficiary charities.The run had 7,000 runners at an entry fee of $50, so the gross income was $350,000. So I'm curious, exactly how much did the charities receive?My answer: To be clear, questioners who do math for me will always take priority.Real answer: This is apparently not the first, or perhaps the 100th time, the Color New Balance Suede Trainers
Run has gotten this question, and the answer is a little complicated."We hear this in every city, absolutely," said race organizer Tabitha Cooper. "People typically calculate how many runners we had, do the math and ask where all that money went."The amount is never really finite, and there are different ways we give," she said. "So it's not just a matter of writing a check and we're done."Take our poll: Does which charity will benefit from a 5K (or similar event) factor in your decision to participate?The Color Run, a national brand of 5K races, are "paint races" held across the country under the slogan "The Happiest 5K on the Planet." Runners begin dressed in clean white T shirts and pass through a color station once every kilometer where they are showered with colored powder, usually corn starch.The race concludes with a Finish Festival party, complete with music, dancing and "massive color throws," large scale tosses of more colored corn starch.People seem to take particular notice that the race is run by a for profit, but the company does partner with different charities in each city to bring awareness and donate different amounts.Often other races with a charitable beneficiary New Balance Fashion Trend Men
will simply cut a check or give a portion of the proceeds to the cause, but this one works a little differently. The charity component of the Color Run is broken into three parts:The first piece is a post race donation. This set amount is determined case by case, and depends on the level of "involvement" and number of volunteers provided by the charity. Cooper said they don't usually disclose this amount, and the final tallies for Asheville weren't in yet either way.The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation sends somewhere around 30 volunteers, according to spokesperson Mary O. Ratcliffe. "We were just honored they chose us, and we got a lot of great support," she said.Part two is "embedded giving," in which runners are encouraged to add a donation that goes directly to the charity during the registration process. That usually does well, Cooper said.Part three is a set of charity registrations. In some cities, including in Asheville, the Color Run provides the partner charity a number of free registrations. The charity then sells the registrations at whatever cost they like, and they keep 100 percent of that sale.
