Marjory Stoneman Douglas's Dance Marathon Color Run Held at The Equestrian Center

By Jon Schaefer

Marjory Stoneman Douglas’s 2nd Dance Marathon Color Run takes place at The Equestrian Center with two 5K races: adults and children. 

A Color Run is an untimed race. At each kilometer mark, Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder.

The Miracle Network Dance Marathon is a national fundraising organization that donates all proceeds from events to charity. This event will support the Nicklaus Children’s hospital.

Racers will receive white shirts at the start of the race, medals, and will be treated to food donated by Chick-fil-A and Family Bagels of Long Island.

“This year, we have a 65-foot obstacle course the participants run. It’s a really fun time. At the finish line, we throw color packets. This is a great family event,” said Gabrielle Sorbara, vice president of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas chapter of Dance Marathon. 

Held on Saturday, December 17, in-person registration starts at 8:30 a.m. The adult’s race takes place at 10:00 a.m., and the children’s race after. Admission is $35 for the adult race and $15 for the children’s race. 

Held at The Equestrian Center, 8350 Ranch Rd. Parkland, Fl 33067
