In Case of Inclement Weather
The Waverly Park PTA Color Run event is scheduled to take place on Friday, October 11, 2019 beginning at 12:30 pm (Parent Check In). If inclement weather at the start of the event prohibits the safe start of the event, it will be rescheduled for Friday, October 18, 2019. The same event day schedule will be used. No additional participant registrations or waivers will be accepted between October 11 and October 18. 

If inclement weather again prohibits the event from being safely held on October 18, it will NOT be rescheduled. If inclement weather occurs during the event in progress on either October 11 or October 18 that prevents the safe completion of the event, it will NOT be rescheduled. In either scenario, please remember that all money raised/paid towards the Color Run event was a donation to the Waverly Park PTA. No refunds will be made.

Things to Remember
*All participants must submit a waiver by Tuesday, October 8, 2019. No waiver = no race. No exceptions!

*On the day of the event, please send your participating child to school in play pants/shorts and tennis shoes (and a white/light colored t-shirt if they did not earn a Color Club shirt).

*Those that did not participate in fundraising efforts will have an opportunity to register for the event as outlined in the "2nd Wave Letter" being sent home. They will not receive VIP privileges. 

*VIP Participants are those that raised at least $30, their designated Color Club Members, and those gifted Color Club Member status. They will receive an official Color Club t-shirt for the run and color pack(s) (number depends on amount raised). Non VIP Participants will need to wear their own  white/light colored t-shirt to school.

*Color coded bracelets will be distributed to students the morning of the event to distinguish between Spectator Only, Participant, and VIP Participant categories.

*All parents/family members must check in at the office before proceeding to the Color Run event.

*Parents may check their students out early after the event with the child's teacher.

*If you will be taking your child home, consider bringing old towels for them to sit on.

*Instructions on how to maintain the color in your shirt are available at the bottom of this page.

Then set up your personal website and email/text/share on social media  to reach as many people as possible!

Even if you're only collecting cash/check donations, please still register your child online. This will earn them a pack of silly bands and help us track participation.

Just return the "I Registered" coupon on the envelope to their teacher to receive the silly bands.

2.  Ask friends and family to donate! No amount is too small! Our school's goal is for each student to raise $150! Our overall goal is to raise at LEAST $20,000! Make checks payable to Waverly Park PTA.
