Color run in Manheim

By on April 12, 2017

Burgard and Stiegel Elementary Schools will be hosting Color-A-Thon fundraiser color run on May 6. Registration starts at 8 a.m., and the event begins at 9. It will be held at Memorial Park on Adele Avenue.

This fun, healthy event is a fundraiser where students will be asking for donations and earning rewards depending on the level of donations they raise. At the end of the donation period, a 3K Color-A-Thon event will take place. The students can walk, run, skip or cartwheel through a course where they will get blasted by color dust.

To make it even more fun, the community is invited to participate.

The color dust is safe, non-toxic and completely washable. It’s made of corn starch and color dyes approved by the FDA.

“This is a safe and healthy fundraiser,” said Stacy Hondru, PTO president for Stiegel Elementary. “Plus it’s a fun way to get our students outside and have a blast while raising money.”

“We are very excited to host this Color-A-Thon event,” said Hondru. “The money will be used to fund field trips, classroom supplies, PTO events and to further the education of our students.”

The rain date for the 3K is May 7. To donate or register to run, contact a student or visit
