When is the Color Run?

  • The Color Run event is POSTPONED until Tuesday, October 8

  • Fundraising registration is NOW OPEN and will be live through Wednesday, October 9. 


What is the COLOR Run?

  • Country Oaks Elementary’s (COE) largest FUNDRAISER for our PTA. This is a fun event that promotes healthy habits while also raising needed funds for our yearly PTA activities. 

  • Each student is asked to raise at least $60, but any dollar amount is greatly appreciated.  

  • Students earn prizes for raising money! There are individual prizes, classroom incentives and school wide incentives. All prizes and incentives are sponsored by McDonald Financial,  Highland House RestaurantDEFY Detroit, Little Caesars/Milford and Huron Valley State Bank.

  • The culmination of the fundraiser is the Color Run event. At this event students warm up with exercises (led by Wixom Fit Body Boot Camp instructors) and run through color stations where colored cornstarch (sponsored by Cheryl Yakuber Mueller THE LUXE GROUP - eXp Realty and Heinsight Eyecare) is tossed on their COE shirts (provided by Hersh-Beattie Orthodontics).

  • The event occurs during the normal school day, in the afternoon.  It is held outside on the lawn behind the school.  

  • The whole family is welcome to come to the event and cheer on their student(s). Race times for each grade will be listed closer to the event date.

Why is this important?

  • The PTA provides enrichment programs for our students that cost thousands of dollars annually.  This annual budget comes from fundraisers and membership dues and includes things like school-wide assemblies and technology, playground enhancements, art and music supplies, classroom enhancements and field trips. (Click on the "Points of Pride" button below to view what the PTA supports in detail).

  • For the first fundraiser of the year the school’s goal is to raise $40,000.  This will help continue to support all the programs the PTA has traditionally funded at COE. 


When is the money due?

  • Early Bird Incentive is BACK! Every student that turns in a donation of $50+ by Friday, September 13 will be entered into a raffle to win one of FIVE Defy Detroit Extreme Air passes (socks included) or a Reggie Jackson autographed lithograph from the Detroit Pistons!

  • We need over 80 volunteers to help execute the Color Run. We use Sign Up Genius to organize volunteers.  Click "Oakley the Lion" directly below, which will take you to the Color Run Sign Up Genius. Take a look at where you might be able to help out! We look forward to meeting you!

  • All parent volunteers must have an approved Criminal Background Check to volunteer at Country Oaks.  It takes over two weeks for these forms to be approved.  Please turn in your form ASAP to volunteer at the Color Run.  Only turn in ONE FORM per person for the entire HVS school district.  If you have already turned in a Criminal Background Check form to another school in our district, please inform the main office.
