Registration is now open for the HOSA group’s annual color run which takes place on April 18. It is co-sponsored by radio station, Hot 96.7

All proceeds go to the Marshfield Clinic Cancer Center (MCCC) Angel Fund in Stevens Point.

Participants will receive a white color run t-shirt if they register by March 13. Shirts are not guaranteed after that date. There is a $25 admission fee. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult and children under the age of 4 are free but will not receive a t-shirt.

Color run participants are able to run, walk, jog, even crawl if desired, through the two-and-a-half-mile course. Starting at SPASH, the run goes through the Green Circle Trail, Zenoff Park, Sculpture Park and concludes with a two-way split path at SPASH’s practice football field to divide those who do or do not wish to participate in the color powder party.

The Angel Fund helps cancer patients with financial assistance with non-medical bills like mortgage payments, transportation costs to appointments, car repairs, groceries, utility bills and rent so families can focus on helping their loved one battle cancer.
