One of the event organizers, Susan Brackett, who teaches at RES, is enthusiastic for this first-ever event.
"I am really excited to be a part of this great fundraiser for the school. Not only will the My School Color Run help support the needs of students and teachers with the money that will be raised, but it is also a fantastic way to support the school's wellness policy while having lots of fun!” she said.
