Academy of Finance holds second annual Color Run.Hundreds of students, teachers, administration and community members gathered at Monticello High School on Sunday, May 21, for the 2nd Annual "My School Color Run," sponsored by the MHS Academy of Finance (AOF). A total of $5,824.96 was raised to support AOF scholarship funds.

My School Color Run is an untimed 5-kilometer run on school property for all ages that ends in a joyous blast of color. Participants received a t-shirt, sunglasses, a color pack and admittance to the after-party.

Along the route, groups of students showered participants with colored powder at four checkpoints, making it a “colorful experience.” Additionally, each participant received a single powder color packet that was thrown in the air at the final color celebration at the end of the finish line.

Following the run, participants were encouraged to stay for the AOF’s Color Celebration which featured a live DJ, refreshments, food available for sale, and several vendor booths.

Many thanks to the AOF students and staff who volunteered their time and effort to make this memorable event a great success!
