LOCAL SCHOOL LAUNCHES NEW HEALTH-BASED FUND RAISING EFFORT Students to get fit, then douse themselves in color!
The students of Dingman Delaware Primary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for their school. The school through the involvement of its PTA, is introducing a program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run programs aims to go beyond traditional fund raising. Rather than sell goods, this program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living.
“We’re extremely excited about the launch of the My School Color Run Program at our school”, says Kimberly Butaitis, DDPS Principal. “We’re looking forward to involving our entire student body and faculty in a fun and healthy program. We want to engage the entire community and encourage local businesses and individual community members to get involved.”
The color run will be held on May 22nd, 2016 at Camp Speers and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Racers will pass through several color stations throughout the course and end with a color toss. Interested participants can register for the run by visiting DingmanColorRun.eventbrite.com or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Anyone interested in more information or a copy of the paper registration form can contact DDPS PTA (firstname.lastname@example.org).
