Children participate in a color run/walk.

Students, staff, faculty, alumni and families are invited to join the Newman University community for its first-ever color run/walk Saturday, Dec. 2.

“This is core memory territory,” said Joshua Prilliman ’14, director of student activities. “This is a great opportunity for families to come out, get colorful, reconnect with students, faculty and fellow alumni.”

Participants can experience the campus in full color as they walk/run a 5k route while having colorful, washable paint powder thrown all around them. The path will extend just south of Newman’s campus to the Wichita ASC Center.

Newman University's first-ever color run/walk is on Saturday, Dec. 2.
