CLINTON TWP., NJ - Back by popular demand, the Hunterdon County YMCA will host its Third Annual Color Me Healthy Fun Run on May 6.

The run will be held at the Y’s Round Valley Branch at 1410 Rt. 22 West in Annandale. This one-mile course is suitable for the entire family, including the family pet. This year there will be additional post-run activities for all.

The Y created the run in 2015 to provide a community event that was fun and appropriate for the entire family and for all fitness levels. According to YMCA Director of Healthy Living, Teri Saccal, “The Color Me Healthy Fun Runs have turned out to be amazing events. It has been great to see family and friends being active together and having a great time.”

The event is open to all. Participants can register at either Y Branch or online at www.hcymca.org

Registration fees are $10 for members, $15 for others for ages 12 through adults; and $5 for members, $10 for others for youth ages 3 - 11. Children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The run will start in waves and participants can register as a team to be assigned the same start time.

The first wave will begin at noon, followed by staggered waves. Start times will be posted on the Y website one week prior to the race.

The last wave of the day will be pet-friendly. Leashed dogs that are up to date on vaccinations are welcome. The color is non-toxic, but may stain. Participants are encouraged to wear white for maximum color effect. Official Color Me Healthy Fun Run t-shirts are available for $5 and can be purchased at time of registration.

Candidates 'Weaponized' News Article

To the editor:

I was dismayed to see my 2014 news reportage inaccurately weaponized by council members Marc Hain and Brooke Warden in their campaign flier attacking Al Brewer. The headline “School security at issue: Flemington-Raritan board member accused of leaking secrets” is less than a half-truth, given the ensuing revelation.
