We are excited to announce our first ever Color Run at Belmont ES on Sunday, May 19th from 2-4pm! 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 $6,000 from this fundraiser and have FUN while doing it! the $6,000 raised will enable our students to enjoy the assemblies, author visit and instructional materials budgeted for this year. If we raise OVER $6,000, the PTA would like to purchase physical education equipment for our school.
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!
