The 2021 Lompoc Hospital District Foundation Colorthon 5K will be at the Mission Club in Vandenberg Village on October 30.
After a short hiatus – and in a new location – the popular and exuberant fundraising event will begin with registration at 8 am in the club parking lot.
At the picturesque locale, participants will run or walk a pre-arranged 5K course through a series of “color stations” where volunteers will toss colored powder (actually, cornstarch) at runners.
This untimed event is open to runners, walkers, joggers, and anyone who wants to come out and have a fun morning while supporting the Lompoc Hospital District Foundation.
Online registration has ended, but you can still register the day of the event. Sign-up as an individual, a family, or in a group. Everyone will start together, moving at their own pace through various “color stations” where enthusiastic volunteers shower participants with dyed cornstarch.
Numerous sponsorship levels are also still available. For more information visit the Foundation's website.
The 2021 Colorthon will help raise funds to purchase an advanced MRI machine for Lompoc Valley Medical Center. The new MRI will enable faster scan times, higher image quality, more automation, and better resolution to allow new types of imaging.
Masks are recommended but not required for this event. Health and safety protocols are subject to change based on federal, state, and local government policies.
