“Color Run” Coming To Sheldon

color-a-thon 1Sheldon, Iowa — Runners will take to their marks later this month 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.

The Sheldon High School Color Run is the brainchild of Sheldon High School student Emma Van Meeteren.  She says that, while she’s never participated in a Color Run, she’s witnessed one, and it looked like fun.

Van Meeteren says the Sheldon Color Run will take place Memorial Day Weekend.

She says registration is as easy as visiting a website.

Registration fee for the Color Run is $30, which includes a t-shirt and color pack.

Van Meeteren says that, in addition to runners, volunteers are also needed for the Sheldon Color Run.  If you’d like to volunteer, you can call Emma Van Meeteren at 712-324-4836.
