The Millstone Township PTO/PTSA will be holding their first ever Color-a-T hon on Sunday, October 18, 2015! The event will take place at the Millstone Township Middle School located at 5 Dawson Court. It’s their first community wide partnership. Participants can walk, run or dance through a 2.5 mile course and get color-blasted in safe, eco-friendly, plant based powdered dye at every zone…turning them into a moving target of fun! “There will also be a shorter course which is perfect for junior runners and the entire family, my kids are so excited to take part in this event,” said Event Chair Christina Baldino. Registration begins at 8am and participants can take part in free pre-race activities while they wait for the race to begin at 9am. All the participants will line up behind a giant inflatable archway at the starting point. The 2.5 mile course was mapped out by Mr. Joseph Muni, the Middle School Athletic Director. “Part of the terrain is the middle school cross country course and part of it is a very scenic route through the woods,” said Muni. “This course proves to be a lot of fun during the cross-country season and promises to be just as exciting for the upcoming Color-a-T hon.” After the race, participants can jam out to music at the After Blast Party! We will count down to when everyone rips open their color packets to share a blast of color with family, friends and everyone around. The result is a once in a lifetime experience all while exercising and having fun running alongside classmates, teachers, administrators and members of the community. There will also be a food truck, activities for the youth and plenty of vendors. Non-millstone students and members of the community can register by logging onto School ID is 120118. Students will receive a pledge packet come September where they will get a chance to earn tons of free prizes to use on race day! “This is not only a great opportunity to support the children of Millstone Township but it’s also a great opportunity to advertise your business,” said Kristen Saker, Co-President of the PTSA.
