Thank-you to the Maricopa Youth Council!

On Saturday, January 30th members of the Maricopa Youth Council participated in the Copa Color Run Street Team promotion.  The objective of this marketing campaign was to increase attendance and awareness of the 2016 Copa Color Fun Run, build community engagement, encourage business/citizen involvement and to educate the business sector on the experiences that are unique to the City of Maricopa.  The outreach also provided an opportunity for Maricopa Youth Council to enhance their personal development and leadership skills. 

If you would like to showcase your business at the Copa Color Fun Run, vendor applications can be downloaded on the Special Events website.
