Please note students will not be collecting donations for laps, but there is an option to sponsor your student's run through the Color Run Sponsor Collection field below the Color Run Registration Fee if you choose to do so - this donation will go toward supporting Brinker PTA's Programs enriching and enhancing students' educational experience and their healthy lifestyles.
We hope you and your family can join us for this fun family event!
