Run Wild at the Creek is the PTO's Spring Fundraiser, and will be held during school hours. It is an interactive event to promote health, fitness, and fun while raising funds for our school. All Willow Creek students will participate in the fun run and get a Popsicle at the end of the event. The theme is Dr. Seuss and students are encouraged to wear crazy socks, have crazy hair, or dress as their favorite Dr. Seuss character.
THIS EVENT IS A COLOR RUN!!
We use NON-TOXIC LIQUID color for our color run. There will be two stations along the track where parents and volunteers will spray runners with bright colors as they run by. Not only does this cool them off as they run, but it adds a fun, colorful element to the excitement of the day! While the colors used in the color run are washable, please have students wear clothing that is suitable for this type of activity. Students will be provided a white Run Wild shirt to wear at the event. We also encourage sunglasses to be worn to protect eyes. Families are welcome to participate by cheering runners on, volunteering, or running with your student!
THIS EVENT IS ALSO OUR FIELD DAY!
Students will rotate throughout the day to different field day activities. One of the stations will be the fun run - the other stations will give the students the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and obstacle courses. It is a fun day for all of our students to participate in.
