Color Vibe at Tucson Medical Center

TMC got just a little more colorful on Saturday, Dec. 1 when Color Vibe came to town! TMC hosted this unique event with a two-mile circuit of its campus totaling 3.1 miles (a 5K run/walk). At strategic locations throughout the course, participants were pummeled with “magical color powder” made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that has been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. It is non-toxic, 100% safe, and also biodegradable. As with any substance, you will want to keep it out of your eyes and lungs.

More than 3,000 Tucsonans of all ages showed up for this first-for-Tucson event ready for fun, decked out in tutus, fairy wings, colorful socks and more. When the day was done, they were a bit fitter and a lot more colorful than when they started.

“It was such a fun event,” said Julia Strange, Vice President, Community Benefit, for TMC. “I heard a number of people along the way comment that this was their first 5K – what a fabulous thing and such an amazing way to get enthusiastic about fitness.”

The event wasn’t just fun and games. Color Vibe donated over $6,000 to Girls on the Run of Southern Arizona.

Special thanks to Michael Rausch for the fabulous photos included in this blog. Mike is a long-time friend of TMC who moved out-of-state several years ago. He was visiting for the weekend and shot these amazing photos.
