Do or Dye Color Trail Run

Continental School is sponsoring a 5K Color Trail Run at 1991 E. Whitehouse Canyon Road, Green Valley, AZ on Saturday, March 3, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. We would like you and your family to participate! The money from this fun-filled and health conscious event will help to fund our athletic program. The cost to register is only $25.00 which includes a participation t-shirt and color dye pack. After the event, there will be a color blast party with music and a big blast of color. Following the run, PTC will be sponsoring a craft fair on campus for your continued enjoyment of the day.
