Join the community of Paducah as they walk the Kindness Color Walk this Saturday, August 5, 2023. Kindness Color Walkers will meet at the number 16 shelter, 9 a.m., at Noble Park. This will be the first walk since 2019 due to the pandemic. The Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation is hosting the walk.
The McCracken County Band's drumline will lead all Kindness Color Walkers to the Peck Education Trail where the walk will officially begin. There will be three color stations on the trail with 500 pounds of non-toxic, biodegradable color pigment. As the walkers move through the trail, volunteers will douse them with color. At the end of the walk, all participants will be given a color packet of their own to throw out to the crowd.
Businesses and organizations will be participating in the walk-through donations of goods, funds, and time. Electric 96.9 will play music, water will be provided by Banks Grocery, Chicken Salad Chicks, and the Graves County ASAP Youth Council, Wellsprings Dermatology will have sunscreen, and a local boutique, the Dirt Road, will offer cotton candy.
Because the event has increased in size, registration will be managed by Race Roster. In years past, the fee for the walk was $10. Race Roster will charge a small processing fee at checkout. If rain cancels the event, it won't be rescheduled.
