Race for Faith and Color Run
The FUTP 60 Team organized our annual Kick Off with a One Mile Color Run. The entire school and staff participated by walking or running the color blast course for fun and fundraising. This is one of the school's favorite days of the school year. Adults, parents, and friends stagger themselves on the course and color the participants with blasts of color. The students use this opportunity to raise money for the school, and the grades with 100% participation get to compete in a GaGa tournament. It is a great way to build relationships with the community and staff. Also, students that exceeded our expectations for raising money, got to silly string the teachers! So 14 students got an entire can of silly string to spray on our staff!!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students helped organize by advertising for the event and speaking to the students, encouraging them to participate.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The students, staff, and parents all come together and share in the fun by either participating or volunteering.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The goal is for 100 percent participation and helping new families connect with our school, in addition to encouraging physical activity.
