Event brings color, music to town
A 5K fun run brought some color to Chenoa on a gloomy Saturday morning.
The color walk and run featured stations where volunteers tossed colored powder at participants. Coordinator Rod Kodavatikanti was pleased with how everything turned out.
“I just want to thank each and every person who came to Crossroads Café to support missions,” said Kodavatikanti. “We are thankful to the Chenoa community for supporting Project Nehemiah Ministries.”
Those throwing out the colors even had the chance to sing Happy Birthday to a 5K participant who was “overwhelmed with joy,” according to Kodavatikanti.
“A lady turned 70 years old today and said it was a great way to celebrate her birthday with her daughter and son-in-law all together doing the 5K.”
Kodavatikanti thanked Christ Community Church of Chenoa for allowing him to borrow the sound system during Saturday’s event.
Following the run, musical performances were presented by Madeline Zimmerman, Kieran (Krenz) Metcalf, Tim Dial and Merryn Krenz. A quilt made by Susan Whitver was auctioned and the silent auction featured handmade bags from the Joythi Project.
