Event Information

About Us inner_about_01Everyone has met someone that SPARKLES and shines their way through life…joyful and carefree! “Sparkles” is the inspiration for our one of a kind,colorfilled and glitter-fied event! We may not all be as free-spirited as we like, but for one moment, one day, one 5K WE CAN ALL GET SPARKLE ME WILD! HOW WE SHINE Sparkle Me Wild is all about freedom, family, fun, being healthy and most of all feeling how beautiful life can be! Every once in a while we all need to let free our inhibitions and get WILD! Each step along the 5 Kilometer journey will lead to color stations, sparkling glitter stations, and bright bling at the finish. We are all about fun, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to see a little appreciation for our colorful finishers. We believe like any race you deserve to be rewarded for your accomplishments…so medals for everyone at the finish line! Big, small, short, tall, all are encouraged to be a part of the sparkle parade! You can walk, skip, cart-wheel, jog (and yes run) or dance your way through our course and at the end you will not be awarded on time, but rather your sparkling, carefree self as you cross the finish line! SHARING THE SPARKLE Sparkle Me Wild directly supports GO FAR(Go Out For A Run); a national non-profit who’s sole purpose is to fight back against childhood obesity across the great US of A! GO FAR changes lives by educating children through a 10 week curriculum designed specifically for elementary and middle schools that promotes character building, the importance of healthy living and nutrition, all while training them for a 5k. 2% of profits from all Sparkle Me Wild events are donated to GO FAR National. SPARKLE COLOR Colors have always had meaning and have been an essential element of celebrations across cultures from the beginning of time. We are bringing a color celebration to life and making it sparkle! There is nothing better than sharing laughs with family and friends, taking healthy steps, and being surrounded by positive energy. Color is a visual expression of personality, occasion, and emotions. Colors radiate our natural energy.
