Hundreds of people participated in the Colour Me Purple 5K Walk/Run on Saturday and Sunday morning, proceeds of which go to support empowerment programs for women and youth.
Saturday’s walk and run took off from Kaibo, and Sunday’s event took place at Smith Cove. Walkers started at 6:30 a.m. and runners launched at 7 a.m.
The event was a part of the Department of Counselling Services’ “Honouring Women Month” celebrations.
