On Oct. 3, FBLA will add a little fun to the typical fundraiser with a community color run. The event will help pay for students’ conference costs. Beginning at 9:30 a.m, the run will feature three color stations for participants to get a blast of color along the route.

“It is designed to be a fun run,” Mrs. Stewart said. “You don’t have to be a competitive runner to participate, but for those that want to be a competitive runner, they will be able to time themselves and run the route twice.”

After running over one and a half miles everyone will go back to the parking lot of the high school for a colorburst where everyone will be given a packet of color to throw up on the count of three.

You don’t have to be a competitive runner to participate.”

Sept. 22 is the last day to pay the $20 registration fee in order to receive the official run t-shirt. Late registration will be accepted but shirts are not guaranteed after the deadline. Forms are available at the high school office or on the BIC website

Mrs. Stewart and many students are very excited for the color run and they think that this will be great for FBLA and the community.

“It’s exciting,” Mrs. Stewart said. “It’s always a good time. Some teachers and I have done this before, and I look forward to the fun time here. It is messy but it’s fun.”

“I have always wanted to participate in one, and they are always in Memphis so I am really excited to have one here in Monette,” Ashley Field, senior, said. “I think that we will be able to raise enough money so we won’t have to have any other fundraisers. I also think that the community will really come out and support us.”
