To the editor,
On May 23, the Aberdeen High School chapter of the National Honor Society held a Color Run to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This was the first time we held this type of event as a fundraiser. It was definitely a success. We are planning to make it an annual event due to the support we received.
Many people are to thank for the Color Run going so well. First of all, high school principal Travis Pincock was supportive of the idea from the start, offering ideas and even participating in the event. High school students Jasmine Barajas and Zoe Behrend volunteered to organize and promote the Color Run for their senior project. They did a fantastic job. Hannah Wright, chapter president, suggested the Color Run and helped in many ways to see it through. National Honor Society members helped participants stay on the course. The city of Aberdeen and officers were cooperative and helpful. Teachers supported the event by participating, or encouraging students to attend, or both.
The following business either donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation or helped pay for t-shirts that were sold to raise money: Ace Hardware, Beck Embroidery, BBK Farms, Corbridge Oil, Country Health Store, Diesel Depot, Napa Auto Parts, Pleasant Valley Potato, Sun River, Wallace Drug, and Wright Service and Repair.
Due to the generous support from businesses and National Honor Society members, all expenses for the Color Run were covered. All proceeds from T-shirt sales and registration were sent to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
And a special thank you to the community for your support. It wouldn’t have been a success without you. Hope to see you all there next year!
