Hope you are ready for this SATURDAY!
In order to make the process go smoothly, I wanted to impart a few details concerning the Walk for Life/Color Run by location. But, first- if you are reading this and haven't registered yet, let me assure you that YOU CAN STILL PARTICIPATE. Just arrive at your desired location at the specified time and we will help you from there!
Everyone will need to Check-in whether you have registered online or not. We must verify your arrival and will accept any money not already turned in. You will receive whatever goodies you qualify for:
- $25: You receive a T-shirt
- $50: You receive a T-shirt and 25 oz. Fruit Fusion Bottle
- $75: You receive a T-shirt, 25 oz. Fruit Fusion Bottle, and Retractable Ear Buds
- $100 or more: You receive a T-shirt, 25 oz. Fruit Fusion Bottle, Retractable Ear Buds, and a Swag Bag (includes sunglasses, color powder packet, precious feet pin, wristband, drawstring bag, and food voucher)
After the race, 1st through 3rd place Color Run participants will receive a medal and the adult, teen and child who has raised the most money for Living Hope Centers will receive their prize:
- Adult (ages 19+) — Two-person Backpack Picnic Set
- Teen (ages 13-18) — Wireless Headphones

CHECK IN begins at 9:30 AM at Hopeful Treasures Resale Boutique (1901 E. Deuce of Clubs). Walk 4 Life and Color Run starts at 10:30 AM.
The Deuce of Clubs, from Holiday Inn Express to Dairy Queen, will be closed due to "Derby Down the Deuce" beginning at 7:40 am and not reopening until 10:30 am, so you may have to take a detour to get to the boutique. Please plan accordingly!
The entire walk/run will occur on the sidewalk. NO lanes on the road will be blocked off NOR will there be a police escort. This means you will need to follow all traffic laws when crossing intersections. The course will be marked with colorful signs and we will have people posted at busy intersections to assist with crossing. Safety is the most important thing to remember and there will be many, many drivers due to Show Low Days.
The awards ceremony will take place at the stage inside Show Low Days at 12:30 pm or soon thereafter. It does cost $1 per person to attend Show Low Days. If you earn a swag bag, you will find a free admittance ticket inside as well as a meal voucher from a specified vendor.
Since the race will end at the Old Pavilion inside Show Low Park, you may consider parking a vehicle by the park or plan on catching the Four Seasons Connection which has a stop at the Aquatic Center every hour at H:54 or at Safeway at H:57 and does drop off at the boutique. Exact change is required and the prices are as follows:
- Regular fare — $1.00
- Ages 60+ — $0.50
- Children under 5 — Free
Show Low Days is a blast. Please consider attending these other events before or after ours! :) For more details, visit http://showlowdays.com/all-events/
CHECK IN begins at 7:00 AM. at The Road to Nowhere by Springerville Municipal Airport (905 W. Airport Rd.) Walk 4 Life and Color Run starts at 8:00 AM.
You may park in the airport parking lot or along Airport Road.
The walk/run will take place on The Road to Nowhere so you will begin and end at the same location this year, so we do not have to worry about shuttling back to our vehicles. Can I get a woot! woot!
At the conclusion of the walk/run, we will have an award ceremony for participants. Everyone who earns a swag bag will receive a food voucher for a meal at Avery's - not the restaurant- but at a booth located inside the Airport on Saturday only.
Round Valley Animal Rescue is hosting their annual fundraiser at the airport. Skydive Arizona will be bringing their skydivers down for aerial entertainment also they would be flying their vintage planes down for public rides with $50 donation. They will have a huge silent auction, food, games, vendors, cakewalk, raffles, live music, classic cars and of course shelter animals. This fundraiser keeps the shelter operating for the year so they can continue helping and saving the homeless pets in our community. Please come and join us at this spectacular event! You can help save babies and animals all in ONE day!

I know this is a lot of information. If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call at (928) 245-0752.
