Wenatchee Color Rush fun run postponed until May


Just days before it was scheduled, Wenatchee’s Color Rush 5K fun run has been postponed.

It was to be held Sunday, but now is planned for May.

Youth United says the event ran into difficulties with its new route on the Apple Capital Loop Trail.

The idea was to create a more scenic route.

But parts of that new route were not handicapped accessible, Youth United said.

Student United Way president Eduardo Mata said diversity and inclusion is part of the organization’s values, so excluding wheelchairs or strollers was unacceptable.

The exact day of the May run has not yet been determined.

The annual fundraising event typically raises more than $10,000 dollars for Youth United programs.
