Color Me Rad events are staged each year in more than 100 cities across North America. Every 15-20 minutes, participants are doused with color bombs and, no surprise, teal will be the featured color in the April event.

This year’s race will feature color bombs at eight different stations – an increase from five one year ago – on the UNCW campus. The course will offer challenges and dares throughout the race, along with a slime station and gel drop at the finish line.

The mission of the Seahawk Club is to strengthen and develop UNCW’s athletic programs by raising funds for student-athlete scholarships and athletic facilities. Each participant will receive a kit that includes a cell phone protector and other items to remember the day.
