Get ready for the most colorful, fun-filled day of your life!
The Bedford PTG is excited to host this family-friendly colorful event in the Bedford community. Family Friendly 2 mile route is back. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us at Bedford High School on Sunday, June 2nd, 2019 for our Color Blast Fun Run/Walk beginning at 9:30AM. Come bask in the colorful world we have created for you, where it’s not about how fast you are but how colorful you will become!
WHAT IS A COLOR BLAST? The PTG Color Blast is a family-friendly FUN run/walk. Be prepared to dance, twirl, run, skip, walk and stroll through color stations where you will be “blasted” with color powder. Be sure to wear white and expect to finish looking like a colorful work of art.
WHY A COLOR BLAST? The PTG wanted to host a family-friendly, community event that would be loads of fun! Proceeds from this event will help advance the mission of the PTG of supporting students, staff and families by providing enriching activities in the schools and for the community. ALL PROCEEDS GO BACK TO THE SCHOOLS!!
