The Del Oro High Women’s Athletic Club is sponsoring a 5K Aqua Color Run-Walk Sunday, May 5 at Del Oro High School.

Open to runners of all abilities and ages and with families welcome to participate, the run will begin with check-in and race day registration set for 2:30 p.m. at Del Oro. The run will then start at 3 p.m.

According to Taylor Jabusch, Del Oro’s Women’s Athletic Club President, the run is being held to help raise funds for Girl Rising, a program designed to help less fortunate women in the area.

“It’s a world wide organization,” said Jabusch. “We’re involved here at the local level and this race will really support it.”

Cost for the event is $20 for runners 14 and up and $15 for runners age 13 and under. Race day registration is set for $25. To signup, visit the Del Oro High web page and click on the  “WAC Run” link.

The first 100 runners to register will receive free race t-shirts. Registration forms can be dropped off at the Del Oro High School office. For more information on the race visit wac@puhsd.k12.ca.us.

More information on Girl Rising can be obtained by visiting the link www.girlrising.org. 

Following the race, the Del Oro cheerleaders will be serving snacks and refreshments.
