School color run

School fundraisers are the worst–a fundraising company comes in to do an assembly to get the kids fired up about the junky prizes they’ll get if they ask everyone they know to buy something or donate money. I was so happy that Sam’s school did it differently this year. The PTA opted not to hire a company. Instead, they organized a color run themselves. Kids, parents, and community members were invited to participate in the run and have a BBQ afterward. It was a really fun event, and I believe the PTA raised enough money for all of its programs this year. 

Sam and Dave did the run together, and Sam loved it. There were stations around the school where participants were sprayed with various colors. Sam’s entire shirt was covered with the paint. He went through the stations backside first so that no part of him would be missed.
