We are excited to announce our Second Annual Color Run at Belmont ES on Sunday, April 26th from 11-1pm!  This experience is planned by the PTA to engage our whole community in a fun way that promotes health, fitness & community, while simultaneously raising money for Belmont ES .   It is our goal to raise $7,000 from this fundraiser and have FUN while doing it!

The Color Run is an opportunity to jump, skip, run or dash around the Belmont Fields in a dash, ¼, ½, 1 mile, or all those combined!  At the turns, participants will be squirted with washable paint on their shirts. (There will be a bubble dash for those students not wanting color.)  We will have music, food, Kona Ice and loads of fun at this event! You won’t want to miss out!

So how can you participate?

  1. Register for the Color Run online HERE. Every child and family member who will participate MUST register. Registration is $10 per person. Belmont Staff and their families are FREE and attending staff also recieve a free t-shirt!
  1. Parents/Guardians should receive an email from 99 Pledges, our new donation platform.   In that email is a link to send to family/friends and even post on social media to raise money for Belmont.  Your child’s personal goal is to send to 4 friends/family asking for $10, earning at $40 total.  Students will earn prizes each week for donation levels:
