Washington High School held a Color the Campus 5K Run/1 Mile Walk on Saturday, March 18, on the WHS campus.
Proceeds from the event benefited the Al Matzes Memorial Scholarship Fund.
There were over 100 participants for this year’s event.
“I want to thank, from the bottom of my heart, all the students and staff who volunteered their time before, during and after the event. This would have never been possible without all of their support and help,” said event organizer Samantha Loepker. “The total raised for the scholarship will be shared as soon as we get final numbers in. We can't wait for the 2nd Annual Color the Campus Run/Walk next year. It will be even bigger and better.”
