ROXBURY, NJ – Did you do something nice for somebody this year just because you felt like it? Do you know somebody who did such a random act of kindness?

You, or that other nice person, could win a $25 gift certificate to Longhorn Steakhouse just by telling us about that sweet behavior and by signing up for this weekend’s Color Fun Run, an event that will raise money for the Kindness for Christopher foundation.

Gary Ribe, of Remax American Dream Realty, has $25 Longhorn Steakhouse gift certificates he will give to three people attending the June 11 event at Horseshoe Lake Park. The three winners will be chosen by Ribe from those who send a letter to TAPinto Roxbury (before midnight Saturday) that briefly relates a random act of kindness story.

To enter, just click the Submit Content button on the top right of the TAPinto Roxbury homepage and choose Letter to the Editor. The letters will be compiled and published in an article, using only first names and initials, and Ribe will pick three winners at the Color Fun Run.

As of June 6, there were still about 100 free Color Fun Run T-shirts available for people who register to run or walk in the event, said Roxbury Rotarian Steve Alford. “If you’re going to register, you might as well register now and get your free T-shirt,” Alford said. “Only the first 400 to register get them.”

People can register online at ColorforChristopher.eventbrite.com.

Alford, who is helping the Roxbury High School Interact Club organize the Color Fun Run, pointed out that meteorologists are predicting great weather for the weekend. “We’re hoping to get 1,000 people there to just put up a lawn chair and enjoy the day,” Alford said. “We’d like to see a large group just trying to talk about kindness, to just promote kindness.”

He urged those who come to bring "Baggies for their cell phones and sunscreen for the weather."
