Approximately 132 people participated in the Riverside Color Me Healthy 5K in Warsaw on Saturday April 30.

Before the race, participants had the opportunity to warm up by doing Zumba with Nikki-Dee Ray from CBS 6 News.

The fun family race was just one part of the Richmond County Family YMCA’s   Healthy Kids Day. Over 17 different vendors sprawled across Warsaw Town Park including doctors and dentists.

Highlights from the day included horseback rides, a Batman obstacle course, bee keepers and renowned juggler Jonathan Austin. Door prizes were also awarded. One of the top prizes was a fitbit.

Ronald Alston, Jr. of the YMCA said the event is just one part of the YMCA’s initiative to bring families together and promote healthy lifestyles.

“It’s just a really fun time for families and it keeps getting bigger and better every year,” Alston said.
