Please join the Montevallo Junior City Council (MJCC) and the University of Montevallo for a 5k Color Fun Run. Proceeds will benefit the Montevallo Junior City Council and the Arc of Shelby County.
The 5k color fun run will be held March 16, beginning at 12 p.m. at Shoal Creek Park on Love Montevallo Day! The run is approximately three miles with color being thrown on runners at each mile. The color is safe for runners and will be thrown below the face.
For highest impact, wear a white t-shirt. Love Montevallo Day t-shirts will be available for purchase while supplies last. Pets are welcome to join if they are on a leash. Race timing will not be provided.
Montevallo Junior City Council
The mission of the Montevallo Junior City Council is to improve youth civic engagement and quality of life. Montevallo Junior City Council (MJCC) members consist of local middle and high school students enrolled in the local schools or living in the Montevallo area. These youth have completed numerous projects such as: establishing a local teen center, raising funds to purchase baseball helmets for youth in the community, and sponsoring holiday events for youth. Montevallo youth are encouraged to attend public meetings held by the MJCC to express their interests and ideas. University of Montevallo students in Professor DeAnna Smith’s Social Entrepreneurship & Sustainability class are serving as advisors to the MJCC in establishing their first color run, offering advice and support while volunteering alongside the MJCC at Love Montevallo Day.
The Arc of Shelby County
The Arc of Shelby County and its national office advocate for specific policies and programs that benefit people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families. The Arc serves over 1,000 individuals and families in Shelby County through community-based programs including early intervention, community living and employment services.
