On Sunday, June 1, more than 17,500 people made their way to the iconic Wembley Stadium in the United Kingdom to take part in the Happiest 5k on the Planet, The Color Run.

Employees and families of Adobe UK formed together to make Team #AdobeLife—a team of 23 individuals focused on raising vital research and support funds for Cancer Research UK.

Each participant started out in a crisp white shirt and as they reached each kilometre, a team of volunteers were on hand to douse runners in coloured powders. Before they knew it, their shirts turned into colourful pieces of abstract art. With no winners and no official timings, the key focus was to get as colourful as possible.

Thank you to all who sponsored Team #AdobeLife. To date, we have raised £1150 for Cancer Research UK, which will go towards funding scientists, doctors and nurses to help beat cancer sooner.
