Families Invited to Attend Area’s First “My School Color Run”

Stroudsburg, Monroe County – Whether you’re an endurance athlete or you rarely exercise, you’ll have a blast getting doused with color during the “My School Color Run” at Shawnee Mountain. It’s a fun 5k walk/run for the whole family. Wheelchairs and strollers are welcome.
The event is a fundraiser for the Summit School of the Poconos. “Rather than sell goods, we want to engage the student body and the community in a fitness initiative that aims to encourage a life-long healthy way of living,” says volunteer Jillian McDermott.
Along the route, participants pass through vibrant color zones where they get sprayed with color.  Participants that register by 4/7/17, will receive a t-shirt, race bib, and color packet to be thrown in the air at the finish line color celebration.
You can sign up for the run by visiting www.MSCRShawnee.eventbrite.com.
Business sponsorship opportunities are also available. Please contact colorrun@summitschoolpoconos.org for more information.
