El Dorado County 4-H Youth Development Program Hosts Color Me Green 5K Run Youth take on leadership roles to be advocates for health Tracy Celio (530) 621-5507 2015-01-12 UCCE

On March 7, 2015, El Dorado County 4-H Members will host Color Me Green 5K Run at the Shingle Springs Rancheria. The Color Me Green 5K Run is a five kilometer run designed to encourage youths and community members to increase their physical activity while also having fun! During the run, participants are showered with green colored dye as they pass through each marker point. This run, hosted by 4-H youth members will be great opportunity for communities to come together and celebrate healthy living and being physically active.

Through the Color Me Green 5K Run, 4-H youth members will encourage the health of El Dorado County. In addition to planning, organizing, and leading the run, 4-H youth will also offer enrichment that will provide nutrition education.
Since its founding, 4-H has addressed national issues including nutrition, fitness and safety in its programs, as well as social and emotional well-being. 4-H Healthy Living programs encompass a holistic approach that includes healthy eating habits, physical fitness, the capacity to recognize and direct emotions, and the ability to develop and maintain positive social interactions and relationships.

Join us in good health on March 7th, wear your favorite St. Patrick’s Day attire and be part of the fun! We are seeking sponsorships, runners and volunteers.
