In memory of Harrison senior Billy Frost, Harrison High School’s National Honor Society will be sponsoring a 5K Color Run Saturday, April 30, beginning at 8 a.m.
The positive influence that Frost had in Mrs. Clouse’s Life Skills Class has inspired Harrison students and staff to organize this event, donating all proceeds towards electronic learning equipment for the Life Skills classroom.
As Harrison’s first ever Color Run, already over 400 people have signed up to participate and a significant number of sponsors have donated money to the cause, including Subway, Old National Bank, and Pink Lotus Yoga Studio.
Without the continuous effort of the National Honor Society, recruiting Color Run sponsors and encouraging peers, family, and friends to participate or donate, this run would not be possible.
Harrison students in NHS have contributed months of strenuous planning to ensure that the event will go as smoothly as possible.
An elaborate course was designed with the help of English teacher and cross country coach Mr. Cahee.
The course winds around the Burnett Creek and Harrison school grounds, with snacks and other refreshments provided at the end of the course.
The 5K will ensure a great workout, while particpants make memories raising money for a great cause.
“Working on such a big fundraising project has been daunting, but I really think that our work has payed off, and I think this will really honor Billy,” junior NHS member Sukhi Kaur said.
Even if you are unable to attend the event, the Students Services Office will gladly be accepting donations throughout the rest of this week.
Support for this event is encouraged, and the National Honor Society is commended for all of its hard work and persistence.
