Colour flies at 2nd annual Chameleon Colour Run

The Uplands Elementary fun-run raised money for alternative seating options at the school

Over 200 people joined the 2nd annual Chameleon Colour Run at the Skeena Middle School on Sunday to help raise money for alternative seating options at Uplands Elementary.

Volunteers stood by along the 1KM and 5KM routes to douse runners from head-to-toe in an array of colours.

The aim is to raise enough money to buy wiggle seats and stand-up desks for Upland Elementary classrooms, which will help keep students focused and on-task, according to Nada Last, the school’s parent advisory council treasurer.
