Color FUND Run!

The second annual B-B-E Color FUND Run is Wednesday, October 5 during Homecoming week. It takes place at the B-B-E high school. The fun begins shortly before 1 p.m. when students, staff and community members gather on the property on the north side of the football stadium. Grades 7-12 and community members will run at 1 p.m.; at 1:30 p.m. grades 3-6 and parents will run; and at 1:40 p.m. the preschool students through second grade with accompanying parents will run.
*NOTE: if you register for the run before the end of the day, Friday, September 23, you can ensure getting a t-shirt. Anyone can register and/or donate online at http://bbejaguars.org. Remember that a donation does not equal registration.

My July 7, 2016 issue (printed right before BVD) had a story on page 10 that gave a preview of the 2016 Color FUND run. It explained a great deal of information on the "why are we doing this?" question - not only can students participate in the fundraising, but it gives any private party (person, family, business) the chance to donate directly to a fund that is divided out to multiple student groups benefitting multiple age levels in the school district in both buildings.
It is imperative that members of the public in the Bonanza Valley area - even those who don't have students in the local school system - subscribe to the Bonanza Valley Voice. This is the most inexpensive (just $18 a year) way you can stay informed on what is happening on the local level. Here's the link to do just that =
Let me phrase it a different way: for less than 5 cents a day, you can stay up to date on what is happening across the multiple towns across the Bonanza Valley area - including, but not limited to, what is going on with the happenings of the B-B-E school district.
Here's a glimpse of last year's event, during the prize giveaway near the end of the event:
Here's a link where you can see some online coverage (and a large photo gallery) from the 2015 Color FUND Run at B-B-E: http://bbejaguars.blogspot.com/2015/10/photo-gallery-bbes-color-fund-run.html
. The October 15, 2015 issue of the Bonanza Valley Voice had a full page of color photos from the event.
Thank you for supporting B-B-E schools!
