The Color Run made the streets of Erie glow and also brought thousands of dollars to a local non-profit.

The happiest 5-k on the planet took over the streets of downtown Erie this weekend. And with more than ten thousand participants the event was a success.

Running through the colorful trail wasn't the only perk, partial proceeds from the event were donated to the United Way of Erie.

This is the first time Erie has hosted the event and it helped rake in about 22,000 dollars for the United Way.
