The Eisenhower Elementary School parent-teacher organization will host a “Color North Platte Fun Run” on Saturday, May 6.This will be a non-competitive, family-friendly 5K Fun Color Run, said Tonya Hoatson, the president of Eisenhower Elementary parent-teacher organization. It will be held at the south campus of Mid-Plains Community College.
Packet pick-up will begin at 9 a.m. and the race will begin at 10 a.m.
All North Platte schools and the general public are invited to participate.
The cost is $20 per participant, and $5 from each registration will go to the school of the participant’s choice. This will not only be a fundraiser for Eisenhower PTO but a way to support all North Platte public schools.
If you register by April 10, you will be guaranteed a shirt. Paper registrations are required, since this is the first year. Visit the Facebook Page, Color North Platte, to print a registration form, Hoatson said.
At several color stations along the race course a different color of powder will be tossed on the runners/walkers as they pass by.
"We wanted to do a color run so it would be fun for all the kids and their families since our event is supporting North Platte schools. By the end you will be covered in color," Hoatson said.
Registration forms are also available at Whitetail Screen Print, Pratt Dental and Excel Screen Print.
The organizers are offering a challenge to all schools.
The school with the highest percent of participation (based on enrollment) will receive a trophy and bragging rights.
“We would love to see every school take part and earn some money for their school while having fun,” Hoatson said.
