Color Run & Walk at George Moses Horton
April 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The George Moses Horton PTSA is proud to present the 2nd Annual Color Run & Walk on Sat, Apr 1, 9am-11am, which takes place at the George Moses Horton Middle School campus.
Not to be mistaken for a race, the GMH Color Run & Walk is a fun, inclusive community activity where participants complete laps around the school at their own pace, getting dusted with colored corn starch at color stations. Cheer on your favorite runners/walkers, while kids enjoy the bounce house, DJ, and booths with community partners.
After one, three and five laps, participants may enter into raffles for student-or adult-oriented prizes. The starting line is by the Boys & Girls Club building. Just above it is their “midway” – usually the bus lot – featuring an inflatable and the sounds of DJ Jorge Blanco.
Community members may register online here. Participants may also register on-site between 9am and 9:45am on the day of the race. Register for each participant, one at a time. Only registrations received by Mar 10 will be guaranteed a free T-shirt and color packet. Remember to save your color packet so you can blast your friends with color at the start of the event!
Their goal as the George Moses Horton PTSA is to raise $10,000 which, among other things, will fund water filtration stations, playground updates, teacher appreciation and classroom supplies.
