Even with threatening skies, the 2nd Annual Palmetto Bay Twilight Color Run took place on November 5th with raucous spirit. Just after 4 p.m., registered runners slapped on their colors, braved the elements and were cheered on by friends and family as they circled Coral Reef Park in puffs of tint.
The goal was to raise money for Miami Palmetto Senior High School. PTA President Dina Lara explained how money raised here would go for additional projects at the school. Pinecrest Mayor-elect Joe Corradino said, “This is a great event for a good cause. I’m so glad to take part and so are my kids.”
Just as the runners rounded the mid-way point, the skies opened up and the rains poured. No one seemed to care. In fact, the fun seemed amplified. Puddles of green, red and yellow lined the race course.
Mayor Flinn added, “We are proud to have hosted. It was a great run, lots of fun and I hope that we’ve raised some good money for Palmetto High School today.”
