Every year in early December, hundreds of runners in ugly sweaters, elf ears and Santa hats descend upon the UW-Green Bay campus to raise awareness for arthritis by participate in the Jingle Bell Run, starting in the Kress Center. We have the fun photos.

Color Run coverage

It was a gorgeous Sunday for hosting the Color Run yesterday. More than 3,700 runners attended the biggest Color Run in Wisconsin so far this year, according to Student Life’s Grant Winslow. Besides the usual financial benefit to UWGB Student Organizations, 20 cases of water were donated to the Campus Cupboard and 195 concrete blocks were given to Habitat Restore. There were 200-plus student volunteers, as well as UW-Green Bay percussionists entertaining the crowd and the Green Bay spirit squads cheering the runners/walkers on a beautiful UW-Green Bay fall morning. More photos in a later Log, but the Green Bay Press-Gazette has coverage.

It was a gorgeous Sunday (Oct. 2, 2016) for hosting the Color Run. More than 3,700 participants ran, walked and laughed their way through the best-attended Color Run in Wisconsin so far this year. Besides the usual financial benefit to UWGB student organizations, 20 cases of water were donated to the Campus Cupboard and 195 concrete blocks were given to Habitat Restore. There were 200-plus student volunteers, as well as UW-Green Bay percussionists entertaining the crowd and the Green Bay spirit squads cheering the runners/walkers on a beautiful UW-Green Bay fall morning. Public Safety did its typically fabulous job with parking and security.
