RACINE, Wis., June 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you had fun today? A recent study found nearly 75 percent of us haven't, saying day-to-day responsibilities often get in the way of good old fashioned fun1. Shout® created the Shout It Out campaign, a nationwide call to action for Americans to have actual fun, even if it means making a mess.
As part of the Shout It Out campaign, Shout® is sponsoring The Color Run™, living its belief that fun comes in every color of the rainbow. The Color Run™ is a five-kilometer, untimed race in which thousands of participants, or "Color Runners," are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer and even following the race at the Finish Festival.
Having fun with color is at the core of The Color Run™ and at the core of Shout®, especially with Color Catcher®, the absorbent sheets that trap loose dyes in wash water, protecting clothes against color bleeds and helping preserve original colors. Perfect for removing color and stains, Color Catcher® will come in handy post-race for all Color Run participants who will receive a sample in their race kits.
In addition, runners at select races can stop by the Shout® tent and visit the Shout® Color Camera to produce a 360-degree video of their messy moments to share with their friends. These special activations will be happening at the following races:
- LA Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – June 21
- Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia – July 19
- Washington Square/Library Square, Downtown, Salt Lake City – August 23
- Portland International Raceway, Portland – September 6
Fun on the Go, or Fun Right at Home
In addition to The Color Run™ races, Shout® is keeping the fun going all summer long and Jennie Garth, who starred in "What I Like About You," and "Beverly Hills 90210" and will next be seen in ABC Family's "Mystery Girls" will run the Los Angeles race June 21 to help motivate and inspire people to let loose and find their fun again this year.
