SLO Color Blast Fun Run

Choose Happy


“CHOOSE HAPPY!”  That was the motto of Alex Maier (#23)...and that's what this fun run is all about! It's all about celebrating life, past loved ones, community and having a blast in a cloud of color with your friends and family.   


The SLO Color Blast Fun Run is a non-competitive 5k run/walk.  The Alex Maier Memorial Fund & Scholarship and Black and Gold Boosters receives the proceeds from the fun run, in honor of San Luis Obispo High School soccer player Alex Maier (#23) who was killed in a tragic car accident. The Fun Run was conceived to help fund the scholarships in honor of Alex, and to promote a day of fun, friends and family.
