Welcome to the Bishop Walsh Color Run for Education!  Formerly known as the Race For Education, this is a great opportunity for us to be active and raise funds that will go directly back to our teachers and their classrooms.  This is an important fundraiser for our school and we need your help to make this campaign a success!   Please help and encourage your child to help the school surpass our goal of $30,000.   Every dollar counts!

Rebecca Eanes and Joan Vogtman are up for the challenge of leading the Run again! You may reach either Color Run Coordinator at color@bishopwalsh.org. Color Run for Education will be under the Office of Development and Wendy Herker, Development Director (wherker@bishopwalsh.org)

The Color Run for Education is going to have a different look this year.  All students will be running laps on our track, but we've added a Color War component that is sure to be enjoyed by all the participants!

This event will kick-off with a Color Run shirt making prayer buddy activity. The students will wear these shirts for the Color War. The color powder is made from food grade materials. It is safe, nontoxic and washable!

Thank you for checking out our website, and thank you for supporting Bishop Walsh School!

FAQ's

When is the Run this year?

The Run this year is scheduled for Thursday, October 19th, with a rain date set for Thursday, October 26th. We apologize for the conflict with the school year calendar that was mailed earlier this summer.  Please make a note of the actual date!

What's new this year?

This year we have added a "Color War" component to race day.  

Why did you change the Race?

The Color Run was conceived to mix things up.  We are hoping by adding the color war, students and parents will have a new excitement about the fundraising event.

How messy is this going to get?

It has been determined that the powder washes out cleanly with one wash.  We cannot guarantee it will wash out of every fabric, however, particularly dry-clean items or shoes.  Your student will make a special shirt to wear for the day, but we encourage any other articles of clothing worn that day be fully washable.

Is the powder safe for kids with allergies?

The color powder is made from food grade materials.  It is considered non-toxic; the ingredients are corn starch and food grade dye.  We cannot guarantee that the corn starch was not processed in a facility that also processes tree nuts or peanuts.

Is there a way to donate online?

How can I spread the word?
