Color Run Is Still Scheduled

(Fayetteville, N.C.) – As a point of clarification, the Color Run, scheduled for Saturday, May 23, is a fully and properly permitted event that appeared before the Special Events Committee and was approved through the City Manager’s Office. The Color Run will take place as planned.

There still seems to be confusion from the public between the fully and properly permitted Color Run and the unpermitted color race of a similar name that was promoted online earlier this month.

AmericanTown’s Heroes: Clara Vanni is a VA Volunteer Hero

Clara Vanni is a volunteer extraordinaire. Her energy and vitality are an inspiration to others. At 91 years young, she is still ready, willing and able to give to others, driving herself twice a week to spend the day helping the veterans at the Veteran’s Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

According to her daughter, “Clara works from 8am to 3pm every Monday and Wednesday, but two weeks out of the month, she works an additional day to raise funds at the hospital to support the personal needs of the veterans.”

With her walker in tow, she makes the rounds, offering assistance where she can, showing love and kindness to the patients.

She has been recognized for her volunteerism with numerous citations, including being awarded the National Leadership Award from the National Commander of AMVETS and the National VA Volunteer Services. She also has the love and admiration of the people she touches, who view her as a hero for giving of herself without thought of getting anything in return.

Clara’s daughter knows her Mom is “amazing and gives her something to both admire and emulate.” She honored her on Mother’s Day by posting a recent photo and sharing the story of her Mother’s volunteerism.

Do you know someone who makes an extraordinary effort to help others? Nominate them for next week’s AmericanTown’s Heroes.

Photo of Clara Vanni posted by her daughter Beatrice.
