Who you are running for:

This run is in memory of Mrs. Trout and Mr. Phipps who were both staff members in the Phoenixville Area School District that suffered from brain cancer. They were both extremely loving people that wanted to make a change within the district. They both caried a smile with them wherever they went and they showed people around them how to be strong and courageous while battling their cancer. Mr. Phipps taught science at the Phoenixville Area High School and was very passionate about the environment. He was also a big Star Wars fan. Mrs. Trout was a secretary at East Pikeland Elementary and Manavon Elementary School. Each day she greeted the students with positivity and a smile. Two of Mrs. Trout's favorite things to do were baking and spending time with her family.

What is a color run/walk?

A color run/walk is just like a normal run/walk, but 10 times more fun! Participants will run/walk the route and throughout the route there will be color stations. At these color stations color powder will be throw at participants. After the run participants will see how colorful they got during the run. If participants do not want to have color thrown on them, they can just walk around the station.
