On May 5th, Julius West will have a Color Run!

For those who don’t know what a Color Run is, let me explain. A Color Run is simply a day when people run by stations where all sorts of colors are thrown at you like red, blue, yellow, etc. The run is planned on a half day after standardized testing. If you want more information, you can go on Julius West’s official website. On the website, not only will you find more information, but you will find a link to JW’s online store where you can purchase items such as a race pack for fifteen dollars and color packs for five dollars. The color pack consists of a white t-shirt that will show the colors thrown on you at the stations. Along with the shirt, you also get a Gucci pair of sunglasses (close enough). Extra color packs also available for purchase on the Julius West website!

The color run is an event with a colorful personality. What makes a color run so fun is that people run a mile with colored cornstarch being thrown at them! The first color run was founded in March 2011. The best way to see if it’s fun is to try it! So many people have already done this race before, and if it wasn’t fun, why hasn’t the rave died yet? I have Ms. Chang here to answer some of my questions:

 

Q: What is so important about the color run?

A: It promotes physical activity in a fun way. It allows our school to do something different. It, I think, is also part of the parcc kick off.

Q: Have we ever done this before?

A: We have never done this before, nope. We are just trying something different.

Q: Is it a fundraiser of some kind?

A: It IS a fundraiser, for the Julius West PTSA.

Q: The PTSA?

A: The PTSA is a parent organization to help raise money for the school.

Q: Well, I think that is all the questions I have.

 

The color run is May 5th, so be sure to order a race pack or some color packets to support Julius West. Even if you aren’t racing, you can still support your friends in the race. Let’s make the first color run at Julius West the best.

GO JAGUARS!
