RES kicks off the second annual My School Color Run - By Jim Beers

Last Thursday, Raymond Elementary School, (RES), held a pep rally to raise excitement for the school's upcoming 2nd Annual My School Color Run on September 25th. Last year's event drew nearly 250 participants to the beautiful 1-mile course located on RES grounds, and they hope to surpass that number this year. Race check in on the 25th is 12 p.m., and the race will start at 1 p.m. 

Designed for all abilities, participants may walk, jog, or run the course, with hopes of raising funds for much needed school supplies. Rain date is set for October 2nd. Be sure to get in on the early registration, before September 9th, as that will include your own color packet, racing bib, and My School Color Run t-shirt. Early registration is only $20 per person. Groups of four or more are only $18 per person, and under 4 years and younger are free. Late registration is from September 9 to September 25, is $25 per person, and will not include the color pack, bib, or t-shirt. 
Last year's organizer, Susan Brackett is back once again to spearhead the event. "RES is making fundraising fun again this year with our 2nd Annual Color Run. Be sure not to miss out on walking, jogging, or running the course, while being splashed with color in the color zones," said Brackett. "In addition to the Run, there will again be a silent auction this year. Please don't forget to register early, by September 9th, to pay less and get more. The event is exciting for everyone involved, and really does a lot to benefit the students at Raymond Elementary School," added Brackett.
