For those interested in participating, please consider these tips:

The powder is all certified non-toxic.  

Organizers recommend wearing sunglasses, with a bandana over mouth and nose while in the color zones, for extra protection.  

Additional suggestions: wear a hat and a white or light colored shirt so the color shows up well. Bring a towel and/or an extra change of clothes for the ride home.  

Organizers will offer a station to blow off color, but some color will still remain attached.  

Parking: Please do not park behind the elementary school, but instead park on the street in front of the elementary school, in the middle school or high school parking lots. 

 Coach Leonard will be sending an informational flier home with students.  No fee or preregistration required.  Please join in for some Family Fun & Fitness!
