Show Your True Colors
Simon Youth Foundation has the perfect opportunity to put fun and volunteering in the same sentence! Sign up to volunteer for The Color Run on behalf of SYF, the Indianapolis charity partner of the happiest 5K on the planet.
The Color Run comes to Indianapolis July 20th and we’ll need SYF supporters all along the race course. As participants make their way around the course, SYF volunteers will be helping with runner check-in, hydration areas and applying colored powder onto runners as they pass through four different stations – pink, blue, yellow and orange. If you can’t volunteer, think about signing up for this fun 5K event that welcomes all ages and athletic ability. The 2012 event was attended by over 10,000 people and provided more than $9,000 in support and provided great awareness locally and nationally.
Your volunteer time will raise awareness so that no youth should be without a high school education. Igniting hope in at-risk youth is as simple as showing your support at this event. More than 10,000 SYF Academy students have found that optimism by earning their diploma that they can go anywhere their dreams lead them. More than 3,600 graduates have attended technical or trade schools, and two or four year higher learning institutions thanks to more than $10 million awarded through the SYF scholarship program. It is making a difference, but we still need your help.
SYF wants as many volunteers as possible, so sign-up early and spread the word to your friends, family and colleagues. If you can’t participate, consider helping SYF ignite hope in at-risk youth by donating at syf.org/donate. Your contribution helps students graduate high school through SYF Academies and awards scholarships to ensure there isn’t a financial obstacle to attend post-secondary education.
