A number of Winnipegers were stained different shades of the rainbow this past Saturday and Sunday in the Colour Me Rad charity run at the Red River Exhibition Grounds.

Herds of white T-shirt clad participants scurried along a five-kilometre course, buffeted by waves of multi-coloured corn starch-based powder bombs and squirted with water throughout the race.

“It was fun dancing in a cloud of coloured powder,” said participant Jerrica Brisson.

The traveling fundraiser is held all around the world. In Winnipeg, the goal was to raise money for Camp Manitou – an organization that for over 80 years has aimed to provide camping experiences for children lacking the necessary financial resources.
