Our staff members love taking care of our guests — and people they don’t even know, in the latter case by taking part in the 2012 Color Run at Portland International Raceway.
The run — in which participants start out in white garb, and receive blasts of colorful chalk dust during their passage so they end up … colorful — raises funds for the benefit of the children in Latin American countries, through the group Child Aid.
Based in Oregon, Child Aid is the best-rated of five nonprofit organizations providing similar services. It earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. Of total expenses, 94.7% goes toward programs. And, it should be noted, participants in the Color Run pay for their own soap and water upon returning home.
