FALLSBURG - On Saturday, September 28 (rain date is Sunday the 29), Fallsburg Central School District (FCSD) will host the Third Annual Color Run. The Color Splash FUNDrun by Get Active Fundraising was designed for all ages and fitness abilities.
Before the untimed 5K walk/run, participants douse each other with packets of safe coloring. Along the route, participants pass through vibrant color zones, making it a “total color immersion.” Additionally, each pre-registered participant receives a single powder color packet that is thrown in the air at the final color celebration at the finish line.
This year's event is at the Benjamin Cosor Elementary School (BCES) fields.
Registration has begun already and continues up until the morning of the event. Registration is available online at
Color Run is part of a national campaign to create a united front against bullying with the school and community. FCSD Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), Olweus Club Anti-Bullying Prevention Program, and Wellness Committee are organizers of the festivities. Proceeds go towards the programs created by these on campus organizations. At BCES the coordinators are teachers Brittany Davis and Nicole Cortes; at FJSHS the coordinators are Daniel Redmond, Brianne Beebe-Kauth, and Evan Mullen.
Registration fee is $18 and includes one color packet, one race bib and one white tee shirt (based on availability). Please wear white clothing as you will be doused in safe pastel coloring during your participation. This event is guaranteed to make you laugh and celebrate with family and friends. It is for a worthy cause.
Check-in begins at 8 a.m. on September 28, and the race starts at 10 a.m. Rescheduling will be announced the day before the event. Please check the Fallsburg Facebook and PBIS website for announcement. No refunds will be given. For further information, email,,
