It was a rainbow filled sky – which did not come, however, because of rain – as Oakdale Junior High hosted its Third Annual Color Run on Friday, Oct. 5. The annual event hosted by the Parent Teacher Club raises funds for school projects that go directly back to the campus.
What may have seemed a lofty goal of $30,000 was not only achieved but exceeded as money is still being tallied. The amount surpassed last year’s effort by $10,000.
Students were encouraged to participate in an on-line registration this year. That gave them the ability to share their fundraising via social media, as well as e-mail.
