An untimed three-mile “My School Color Run” will be held Saturday, May 19 at the Sweetwater High School track. SHS athletes will host the inaugural 5K event with the goal of raising money for their athletic programs and the West Texas Children’s Advocacy Center.
Check-in is at 7:45 a.m. The 5K run is at 8:30 a.m. A Kids 1-Mile run is also scheduled starting at 8:45 a.m. for children of all ages and fitness abilities. Along the route, participants will pass through vibrant color zones, making it a “colorful” experience. Each pre-registered participant gets a single powder packet that will be thrown in the air at the final color celebration at the finish line.
Participants who register by May 4 receive a T-shirt, race bib and individual color packet. Persons can sign up by visiting events.myschoolcolor.com and searching for their event or completing a paper registration form. Business sponsorship opportunities are also available.
To register or donate online, persons should visit the event page at events.myschoolcolorrun.com or contact Leslee McGehee at (325) 235-7875 or Leslee.mcgehee@sweetwaterisd.net.
