LHS launches new fundraising effort

Staff Report

LOGAN, W.Va. — Students at Logan High School will soon walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for their school and community.

The school is introducing a program called My School Color Run. The programs aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, this program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living.

The event will be hosted by the LHS Beta Club.

“We’re extremely excited about the launch of the My School Color Run Program at our school”, Dionne Bartley, Beta Club sponsor. “We’re looking forward to involving our entire student body and faculty in a fun and healthy program. We want to engage the entire community and encourage local businesses and individual community members to get involved.”

The color run will be held on April 16th, 2016 at Chief Logan State Park and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Racers will pass through several color stations throughout the course and end with a color toss. A DJ will be present to help celebrate the final color blast. Prizes will be awarded, and food, fun and games will be available.

Interested participants can register online for the run by visiting LHSColorRun.eventbrite.com or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Paper registrations can be picked up at any elementary, middle, or high school in Logan County School and dropped off with payment at LHS. Anyone interested in more information can contact Dionne Bartley ([email protected]) or Jason McPeak ([email protected]). Check out their Facebook Page at LHS Beta Club 5K Color Run.
