POLOKWANE – The Color Run, a unique paint race, claims to make rainbows all over the world. Color Run South Africa raised over R500 000 in 2016 for local causes and education-based initiatives in the areas they took place. In addition R10 from each ticket sold was donated by Capitec Bank to its education upliftment programme. In 2017, the Colour Run aims to be even ‘superer’.
The Superhero Tour underpins the journey towards ongoing personal fulfillment and inner strength, they believe it’s time everyone believes in the superhero in each and every one of us.

“The Color Run is not only an activity that promotes health, but more importantly, the coming together of our diverse communities. They also enable us to give back to communities,” says Francois Viviers, Capitec Bank Executive: Marketing and Communications.
“The portion of proceeds donated from ticket sales ensures the Color Run event will be remembered well beyond the day of the event itself. Making meaningful and impactful changes to the communities in need is one of the reasons why Capitec supports these events as the initiative is well-aligned with Capitec’s ethos,” adds Viviers.
