Description: A “color run” is a unique experience where anyone (aged 2-92) can participate in a “totally for fun” run/walk event. Although there is a timer/clock at the end of the race for those who wish to know their finish time, there will be no official timing. Whether you are an experienced runner or just starting a walking program – anyone can do this. Participants walk or run a course and during the event they pass through “color stations” where people toss powdered color (made of non toxic cornstarch) on their white t-shirts provided with your registration. At the end of the race – you celebrate life, happiness or anything you want – and end up with a colorful t! Some participate to honor loved ones fighting diseases or have passed on and at the end, we hope you have a fun and healthy experience.
The “Colors of Cancer” run focuses on increasing awareness of all cancers. Did you know there are over 19 colors representing cancers? During our “Colors of Cancer” race, you will have different colors tossed on you and at the end of the race you can learn more about what color represents what cancer and why! We hope to increase awareness of the need for cancer research and helping all “survivors” of cancer whether you are a patient fighting the disease now, know someone who is or have lost someone to cancer and you are carrying on as their “survivor”!
Come help us support all “survivors” and have a happy, healthy celebration! All proceeds of this race will go towards Spirit Week 2013 to help build an experiential Cancer Survivors Park along the Swamp Rabbit Trail in downtown Greenville, SC. To learn more, visit survivorspirit2013.com

What is Survivor Spirit Week?
This year both J.L. Mann and Greenville High Schools are joining forces to raise funds for one charity – The Cancer Survivors Park, a project of Patients First. “This park is redefining the meaning of a survivor”, says Greenville High School Student Body President Charlie Stone. “Cancer is something that affects everyone. When someone is diagnosed with cancer, everyone around them is diagnosed. A survivor is the person fighting cancer now, the caregivers, family and friends of those patients and even those left behind when someone loses the earthly battle with the disease.” Charlie continues, “I lost my grandfather to cancer recently, but I am his survivor.” J.L. Mann High School Student Body President, Caroline Grigg, adds, “We really wanted to make a large positive impact on the community and we wanted our schools to get involved with something that they could enjoy for years to come and know it would continually touch many lives. The Cancer Survivors Park gives us that opportunity.” Survivor Spirit Week captures this feeling – the spirit of survivors!
As these two schools compete to be crowned the winner of Spirit Week, ultimately it is our community that wins. We wish both competitors success in their efforts to impact this charity and our city.
Please join the fun and support the students of Greenville High School and J.L. Mann High School and their worthy mission for the Cancer Survivors Park of Greenville.
