The color Of Happiness
November 20, 2017
For a day, Roosevelt Park was the happiest place on the planet.
Roosevelt High school was host to the Shade Run, also identified as the happiest 5km run on the planet where runners get dusted in color at each kilometre of the run.
Organisers need the run to act as a catalyst for individuals to stay an energetic, wholesome life. It’s also used as a way to lift funds for charities throughout South Africa.
