Sheldon, Iowa — This is the weekend when runners will take to their marks in Sheldon to raise money for the Sheldon Community School’s Backpack Program, a program that sends food home with Sheldon school children who might not otherwise be able to obtain nutritious meals on the weekends.
Emma Van Meeteren is the driving force behind this event, and she says that, while she’s never participated in a Color Run, she’s witnessed one, and it looked like fun.
She says registration is as easy as visiting a website.
Registration fee for the Color Run is $30.
As of Friday afternoon, you can still register at that website, but probably won’t get a t-shirt Saturday morning when you show up for the run.
Saturday’s “Color Run” to benefit the Sheldon Community Schools Backpack Program will begin at 9:00 am at the LLRC at Northwest Iowa Community College, and will be run on the same course that the college uses for their annual Thunder Road Race.
