ALN Holi Color Run

Color Run Event Description:

Asian Leadership Network (ALN) presents Holi Color Run event as a part of Asian Heritage Carnival 2017 – World without Borders!

Holi Color Run is an annual event organized by ALN, NJ to further our goals of employee engagement and to celebrate Asian American Heritage Month of May. The Asian Heritage Carnival's proceedings will reach its culmination with the highly popular Holi Color Run, mimicking the Holi festival in India where folks gather in the streets, rejoicing with color powder. The mood will be upbeat and energized with color filling the air to kick off the 5K Run and 3K Walk.

Spotlight Story:

Anita Asri, an ex-Merrill Employee and Technologist has left a lasting impression on her colleagues as one of the most dynamic, positive and inspiring personalities. She strongly believed in team spirit and always recognized and celebrated each milestone of her coworkers. When others came to know about her situation that she was suffering from ALS, they did not know how adverse her condition was until it deprived Anita of every mobility that she possibly had. This certainly brought her ‘mobile’ life to a grinding halt, although her brain remains as intelligent, inquisitive and sharp as ever! Regardless of being a victim of such a debilitating disease, her self-determination, strong will power and positive attitude she carries towards life continues to inspire her family and friends. Her ever-caring and inviting nature still continues to bring her friends and family together throughout the various seasons and ceremonies!

In this era where medical advancements have been taking place every day, it is sad to know that we still do not have any cure or remedy for this disease. Unlike other ailments, ALS is relatively unknown with limited research and support from drug companies.

This Color Run conducted by ALN is to recognize and support all those people suffering from this disease. All the money contributed from this event would be donated to ALS association which is supporting people suffering from this ailment. This Association leads the way in research, care services, public education, and public policy  giving help and hope to those facing the disease.

To recognize Anita's team spirit, bring awareness about this dreadful disease and seek focus on initiative towards a cure for ALS, please consider volunteering to participate in the Holi Color Run. You can volunteer to help with logistics or you can volunteer to run. Come join us for the fun and colorful run while supporting ALS.
