Every year 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 $50,000 for the school year (cost is about $75 per student). 

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

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, May 1st. Please wear them on Friday, May 3rd for a Spirit Day!
  • LAP 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
  • Adults can participate in the Color Run Spray Stations. We will not be ordering t-shirts for the adults this year so feel free to wear a white t-shirt and join your kids! 

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