The event was attended by a huge crowd consisting of youth, foreign residents and local residents in celebration of the day.  People were covered in multicolor power to showcase variety of colors and people before the race.

December 10 marks the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption and proclamation, on 10 December 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the first global enunciation of human rights and one of the first major achievements of the new United Nations.

The formal establishment of Human Rights Day occurred at the 317th Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on 4 December 1950, when the General Assembly declared resolution 423(V), inviting all member states and any other interested organizations to celebrate the day as they saw fit.

This event was sponsored by United State of America Embassy Koror, Koror State Government, Koror State Youth Council, Palau National Olympic Committee, Palau Track & Field Association and The Ministry of Community and Cultural Affairs. [/restrict]
