Color Invasion 5K Hits Oxford Saturday, Aug. 23

Emeritus at Oxford, Providence Companion Care and other sponsors are excited to bring the first ever Color Run 5K to Oxford this Saturday, August 23! No matter if you sprint, jog, or just walk, all proceeds from the first annual Color Invasion of Oxford support the Mississippi Alzheimer’s Association.
What is a Color Run, you ask? Essentially it is a race where participants are doused and covered in different colors! According to, an organization that sponsors Color Runs across the country, the Color Invasion is less about a 10-minute mile and more about fun. There are two rules though, they say:
1. Wear all white at the starting line
2. Finish plastered in color!
