2019 Gator Raiser Color Run and Spring Fair

The 2nd annual Gator Raiser Color Run is coming up on Saturday, May 18th from at Greenwood E.S.

This year the Spring Fair will be on the same day!

Spring Fair:  1-3pm

Color Run:  3-4pm

Just follow these 2 Steps!

  1. To run in the Color Run:  Fill out the form below and return it to your child’s teacher, OR pay online at www.myschoolanywhere.com (via the store) by April 26th to receive a free 2019 Color Run t-shirt.
  2. To fundraise (incentives on page 2!)  Go to Greenwood’s “GetMovin” fundraising page and register http://tinyurl.com/greenwoodcolorrun2019

If a student would like to participate in the run, but cannot because of financial hardship, please contact Ms. Lee at Sandee_N_Lee@mcpsmd.org.  This will be anonymous.

Color Run Details and Incentives

The Color Run will have 3 waves (the order is listed below) beginning at 3:00pm, immediately following the Spring Fair at Greenwood ES:

  1. Gator Tot
  2. Grades K-2
  3. Grades 3-5

Remember! This is a Color Fun Run!  This is NOT a race! The course is only .25 mi. (less for the Gator Tot Dash). Students, friends, and family can run, jog, do cartwheels, skip, or walk the course.  Along the way, participants will be sprayed with washable color paint. At the end, we will have a DJ and COLOR SPLASH party along with a few local food trucks to enjoy.   Visit the run website for more details.
