This past Saturday, McNinch Primary School turned the Sam Shaw Memorial Trail into a powder party as more than 300 people participated in the Color for Kids, Get Fit or Dye Tryin’ event. The Color Run encouraged students to get healthy with their families.
Participants walked and ran around the trail while colored powder was tossed in the air. Troy Goode is a first grader who participated with his mom and sister. “It was fun and I rolled around in the colors.”
McNinch Primary Physical Education Teacher Ashley Doty and school nurse Tammy Riding, RN, organized the event to raise funds to make the school’s playground a safe, more active environment for the students. Both were pleased with the event.
“McNinch Primary’s first Color Run was a blast.” Doty said. “Thank you to all who came out.”
Tammy Riding expressed her thanks to all of the sponsors for supporting the school and students. “It was a perfect day.”
