Win a Day Trip to the Spa with the Color of Wellness 5K Fun Run

The Color of Wellness 5K Fun Run is a fun, family event that will benefit New Day Foundation for Families.

Enjoy a morning of fun and fitness Saturday, August 28 at 7:30 a.m. at Rochester Municipal Park, 400 6th Street – or join virtually from your own favorite walk/run route. Both experienced runners and first timers will enjoy the 5K Fun Run, featuring chip timing for runners of all ability levels, and the choice of wave start time.

Registration for the Color of Wellness 5K is $30 per person and includes a race t-shirt and a finisher’s medal. The top finishers will also win a prize package from Woodhouse Day Spa. Register for participation either virtually or in-person. Proceeds will benefit New Day Foundation for Families, a Rochester Hills nonprofit which offers financial grants in the form of short-term bill payment services, along with financial navigation services and emotional support programs for families as they face the burdens that accompany the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

According to a New Day survey of families from April 2020, 79 percent of patients had vital medical appointments delayed or canceled due to the pandemic, while 87 percent responded that they are increasingly concerned about their long term physical and mental health. Additionally, cancer families are increasingly facing housing insecurity (37 percent), lost income (54 percent) and concerns about food insecurity and shopping safely (47 percent).

“We’re grateful to Woodhouse Spa for their efforts to help us serve some of the most vulnerable in our community during these uncertain times – families facing cancer,” said New Day Co-founder and president Gina Kell Spehn. “It’s a reminder that they are not alone, and people care. The Color of Wellness events are a gift for the patients and caregivers we serve.”

“This event is really important because cancer is a debilitating disease physically and the financial consequences can be devastating, especially now during this pandemic,” said Woodhouse Day Spa owner Anju Brodbine. “Our goal is to create a fun event that families can participate in while creating more awareness for this wonderful foundation that helps so many local families.”

The 5K Fun Run is the third Color of Wellness event hosted by Woodhouse Spa to benefit New Day Foundation for Families. In 2019, the Color of Wellness Beauty and Fitness Fair marked the first community event for the cancer support partnership between The Woodhouse Day Spa of Rochester Hills and New Day Foundation.

Sponsorship opportunities and information are available for the event through New Day via For more information on the 5K Fun Run, call Woodhouse Spa at 248-564-9577.
