Rainbow Run shirts will be coming home TODAY!! Each family’s shirts will be bundled together and sent home with their eldest child at Blythe.

Save the colored band holding the shirts together!! This colored band indicates which group your family will run in.

*NOTE – To preserve the color on your t-shirt after the Run, you must treat it with vinegar BEFORE washing. For a list of full instructions click on the following link – How to Preserve the Color in Your Rainbow Run T-Shirt

  • PURPLE group will start at 5:40 pm

Families will run loops around the school, you may stop to be sprayed with liquid colors (food coloring and water) as often as you are comfortable. Once your family decides it has done enough running, please head to the tables between the tennis courts and the playground for packets of dry colors (cornstarch and food coloring) that may be tossed on oneself or each other. Families are given 1 packet per paid registration.

*NOTE: The color washes out of most materials but just in case, wear items you aren’t worried about staining so you can enjoy the event to it’s fullest! Depending on how colorful you get, the color may stain your skin, hair, and clothes until finally coming out after a few washes. If you have lighter colored hair you may want to cover up with a hat!

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm – Children’s Games will be open.
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm – Ice Cream Social: Come enjoy ice cream and a variety of toppings.

A huge thank you to our sponsors Athletico, Mike Adelsbach – State Farm, Oak Park Animal Hospital, and Burlington Realty!

We are looking forward to a fabulous fun-filled night!
