The Challenger PTA Color Run is on Friday, October 6th
at Challenger Elementary

Every fall the Challenger PTA does a fundraiser to raise money for all the programs we sponsor throughout the school year: Back to School Popsicle Social, Eager Reader, Book Swap, Book Fair, Festival of Cultures, Science Fair, Science To Go with Kate Poaster, Teacher Grants for classrooms supplies and enrichment, Art Programs, Reflections, Teacher Appreciation events and lots more! In order to run all these programs we need to raise about $40,000 for the school year (cost is about $75 per student). We encourage all students, parents, siblings, grandparents, neighbors to come and join us for this fun event to help us support the students of Challenger this school year!

Cost per participant is $50 
**For every adult that registers with a student you will get light up LED sunglasses! 

All donations are 100% tax-deductible and we accept all company matching programs.

REGISTRATION (due by Sept 17th):
*You must register to if you want to get an official t-shirt. Only those wearing the t-shirts will be sprayed with color in the 5 Color Stations*

Current PTA members click here to REGISTER. (REGISTRATION CLOSED) 

If you are not a member of the PTA and wish to register or donate to this event as a guest click here (Grandparents or others can also pay for your kids to participate. This is a great way to get family members to sponsor your child(ren)).

Additional Information About the Color Run:

  • The event will be at Challenger Elementary. The course will go through the field, in front of the school and the back parking lot.
  • We will not be using the powder for the Color Run. It is a very safe and non-toxic spray that will only be sprayed onto the t-shirts. 
  • T-shirts will be sent home on Wednesday, October 4th. Please wear them on Friday, October 6th for a Spirit Day!
  • The top 5 classes with the highest percentage of participants will get a Frozen Yogurt Party from Yo Plateau! 
  • PRIZES: Everyone who registers will get a Color Run Punch Card. Every lap you go around the school you will get a hole punch on your card for prizes. 
  • Every student must have adult supervision during the Color Run

 100% of the money raised will go directly to the Challenger PTA

We need lots of volunteers to make this event successful. Please click here to sign up:

Common Questions/Concerns:

$50 per participant seem
s high..
Yes, we know that $50 per participate seems high, but it really is the only way we can reach our goal. In order to make our $40,000 goal we need 800 participants (there is only 600 students at Challenger). We also rely on Company Matching and Sponsors!!!

You can also ask Grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, Friends to sponsor your student as well. They just need to click on the "Register as a Guest" to register the student. 

We want every child to participate in the Color Run. If this is a financial hardship, please contact Sara Jo or Shannon Leonard about a scholarship. 

Can I run with my child even if I don't sign up?
Everyone is welcome to come to the event – even parents who do not sign up are welcome to walk around with their kids. The only thing that will be restricted is that you will need the Color Run t-shirt in order to be sprayed in the color station. We also need lots of Volunteers so you can come and help out at the Color Run too!
