Running through Rainbows


This year’s Color Me Berry, a 5K trail run sponsored by the Exercise Science Club, provided an opportunity for students, alumni, faculty and staff and their families a fun and stress relieving activity covered in color.   

“Our runners were a bit winded afterwards, but they very much seemed to enjoy themselves,” said senior Caitlyn Sumrell from Marietta, co-president of the Exercise Science Club. “The general response from our attendees was that Color Me Berry was a very fun event to be a part of, both runners and volunteers!”  

Sumrell was one of the organizers of the event along with senior Kelly Ibele, co-president. Twenty volunteers also pitched in to throw colored powder at the runners.  

“I've had this on my bucket list and now it's checked off,” said Eddie Antunez, a freshman from Calhoun, Ga.  Karla Perez, a junior from Adairsville, said she loved the colors. 

Proceeds from the event benefit the Exercise Science Club as well as the Living Water Foundation, to help build a well in a village in Nicaragua.
