Run Wild at the Creek is the PTO's Spring Fundraiser, and will be held on Friday, March 6th 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. This year’s theme is Dr. Seuss. Students can wear crazy socks, have crazy hair, or dress as their favorite Dr. Seuss character. We will use NON-TOXIC LIQUID color for our color run. The kids will run through two misting stations on the track where they can cool off, and get covered in bright colors.
While the colors used in the color run are washable, please have students wear clothing that is suitable for this type of activity. A plain white shirt will show the colors best, or students may purchase a Run Wild Shirt. 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!
