Upward Bound students participate in Color Run


COLBY SISTERS TAKE ON COLOR RUN -- Lyndon Institute junior Brooklyn Colby, at right, and her older sister and LI graduate, Jessica Colby, recently participated in the 2014 Burlington Color Run Race on Sept. 13 in Essex Junction. Jessica Colby is a sophomore at the University of Vermont studying Wildlife Biology, and Brooklyn Colby is a student at LI where she is an athlete on the Ultimate Frisbee team and volunteers with the local Fire Department. Both sisters are also outstanding members of the Lyndon State College Upward Bound program. The Color Run was founded in 2011 to promote health, happiness, and individuality by bringing people together to walk or run in a 5K event. It is an un-timed race where thousands of participants have paint thrown on them every kilometer. Each Color Run partners with a national or local charity, and Burlington's partner this year was Chill Burlington. The Chill Foundation provides opportunities for underserved youth to build self-esteem and life skills through snowboarding and other board sports. Brooklyn and Jessica are the daughters of Stephen and Kelley Colby of Lunenburg.
