Runners take part in colorful Bubble Run in Las Vegas — PHOTOS

Runners awash in colorful foam in a variety of pastel shades took part in the 2017 Bubble Run at Sam Boyd Stadium early Saturday morning.

Among the run’s charity partners are the A-T Children’s Project, a nonprofit organization aimed at finding therapies and a cure for ataxia-telangiectasia, a rare, genetic disease that attacks children; and Sean’s Fund, a program of the Talbert Family Foundation, which provides financial support to local families suffering from catastrophic illnesses, primarily cancer.
