Central Elementary School PTO will host My School Color Run on Oct. 14

BAXTER SPRINGS - The Central Elementary School PTO will host the inaugural community-wide My School Color Run on Oct. 14. Beginning at 10 a.m., the run will raise money for the school PTO.

The My School Color Run is a non-timed, 5K fun run for all ages and fitness abilities. Along the route, participants pass through vibrant color zones, making it a "colorful" experience. Additionally, each pre-registered participant is provided with a single powder color packet that will be thrown in the air at the final color celebration at the finish line.

"Rather than sell goods, we want to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to encourage a life-long healthy way of living," said Abbey Ames.

Participants that register by Sept. 29 will receive a t-shirt, race bib, and individual color packet. You can sign up for the run by visiting Www.CentralPTOMSCR.eventbrite.com or by completing a paper registration form.

Business sponsorship opportunities are also available. Please contact the event organizer, Abbey Ames, for more information at 620-856-3311.
