Color Run - Seedlings in rainbow colors!

During the 2013 Color Run more than 2,500 participants supported the Seedling Trust including Britannica International School, Team Tárnok and our growing and strong supporting running team. Thank you! Britannica International School made a tremendous showing at the first The Color Run Hungary on Sept 29, 2013. The run, an annual event in many cities all over the world, made its Hungarian premiere this year with the start line at Ferenc Puskás stadium. The organizers offered donations for the Trust from their income and we hope to be able to announce the amount soon.

In keeping with the Trust's and the Pető Institute's mission of increasing social acceptance for the disabled and also for promoting inclusiveness in sports, more than 100 disabled children took part in the event and were colored like rainbows at the end of the day. The Trust's new fall line of t-shirts, on view at the Seedling tent, proved to be a huge hit among the Britannica crowd and the Trust sold more than 180,000 HUF worth of promotional gear and gadgets at the event. All income goes to buy a second specially-equipped minibus for the Seedlings. More photos on Facebook.

Show your true colors -- join us!

The Color Run, also known as the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. It's left its mark in cities all over the world and now this year it's finally coming to Budapest on September 22, route to be announced soon. The Seedling Trust will be the featured charity, which means everybody who takes part in the race supports our work!

The idea is easy to follow: wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color. The Color Run is the ultimate fun run -- it isn't about beating your personal best, but more about having the time of your life. It's a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Finish Festival,” using more (natural, non-toxic) colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations and the best post-5k party on the planet!  Save the date, and keep watching these pages for registration details. Special thanks to the event's organizers -- Dreamwalkers Kft. and The Color Run Hungary -- for supporting our work!
