WHAT IS THE VCMS COLOR FUNDRACER?
The Color FUNDracer is a 30 minute "race" at our Van Nuys Blvd site on March 23rd, 2023 (3/23/23!) that culminates three weeks of fundraising. Students can run or walk and volunteer parents and staff will be stationed along the race course at water stations and color splashing stations. The Color FUNDracer will be chip-timed again this year so students can check the number of laps they completed and the splits for each one! Each VCMS student will receive a race shirt and a bib to wear during the run.
Parents are encouraged to attend the race as spectators and volunteers. Click here for the parent volunteer sign up form. We need parents to help pass out race shirts, pin race bibs on students, manage the water stations during the race, splash students with color during the race, and donate water and post-race snack items.
WHAT IS OUR SCHOOL FUNDRAISING GOAL?
Our school fundraising goal is $25,000 and 100% student fundraising participation at any level.
HOW CAN STUDENTS FUNDRAISE?
Color FUNDracer fundraising begins on March 2nd. Students will be asked to fundraise for three weeks leading up to the race event. Ask your friends, family and neighbors to donate $10, $15, $20 or MORE to your student's fundraising efforts!

Each student has a unique fundraising page on the Color Run donation site. This link will be shared with each student and parent/guardian through email on March 2nd. Please email Rebecca Avery if you have questions about how to access your student's donation page.
Student and parents can customize the page with pictures and videos and share the link with family and friends through email and on their social media accounts.
