Registration is open for the 2022 Lompoc Hospital District Foundation Colorthon 5K at the Mission Club in Vandenberg Village on Oct. 29

The popular family-friendly fundraising event will begin with registration at 8 a.m. in the club parking lot, though pre-registration options are available.

Registrations and sponsorships will help the Lompoc Hospital District Foundation raise funds to purchase new equipment and materials for the Rehabilitation Services Department serving LVMC, the Comprehensive Care Center, and Lompoc Health — North H Center. The purchases of the new Rehabilitative equipment and materials will drastically improve the department's ability to care for patients of all functional levels effectively and efficiently.

The untimed event is open to everyone – runners, walkers, joggers, and anyone who just wants to have a fun morning while supporting the Foundation. At the Colorthon, participants will run or walk a pre-arranged 5K course through a series of "color stations" where volunteers will toss colored powder, or cornstarch, at runners.

Registration is open for sign-up as individuals, a family, or in a group. Everyone will start off together, moving at their own pace through various "color stations." The event is not timed.

The pre-registration form may be found at lhdfoundation.org/colorthon. Pre-registration cost is $30 for each adult; $25 each for a Team of 4, and $15 each for participants ages 12-5. Children younger than five will be admitted for free. Pre-registration closes Oct. 21.

Registration on the day of the event is $35 for each adult; $30 each for a Team of 4, and $15 each for participants ages 12-5.

Numerous sponsorship levels are also available, from tee signs to Premier sponsorships.

On the day of the event, carpooling is strongly recommended. Also, Clubhouse Road will be closed for a short period of time immediately after the event begins.

The Mission Club will offer breakfast burritos for sale at the event at a cost of $8, including tea or coffee. Pre-purchase tickets for the meal are also available online.
