Elwood’s Color Run Supports School Programs

Dozens of runners of allĀ  ages took to the streets Saturday in a color run to raise funds for several Elwood school district programs.

Volunteers tossed powders as runners passed by, covering them in shades of red, green, blue, orange and pink. A few runners tried to dodge the powders at the last minute,or covered their eyes and mouths to keep the powder out.

Younger kids had a fun run on the school property before the second run of about 3 miles. The National Honor Society, Knightline and Class of 2026 sponsored the event, which will benefit the Tunnels to Towers Organization which helps the families of first responders who have lost their loved ones, and other activities.

Among the participants was Walter Edwards, Huntington’s deputy parks supervisor, who will also become a member of the district Board of Education on July 1.
