A Magazine eighth grade EAST student has, with some assistance, spent the year organizing a color run fundraiser for the March of Dimes.

The run, dubbed the Diamondback March 5K Color Walk/Run is scheduled for March 11 and will be run on the school’s 5K cross country course

Carlee Parrish, who is also the District FBLA president and a member of the school’s junior high cross county and track squads is behind the project. Also assisting in the run will be the Driggs Lariat 4H Club, of which Parrish is also a member.

Pre-registration for the event is $25 for adults and $15 for those 18 and under. The first 50 registrations will guarantee themselves a T-shirt and goody bag. Forms are available at the school’s administration building, County Discount Pharmacy in Magazine and at the Booneville Democrat.

For more information contact Vicky Parrish at 479-438-3008 or email diamondbackmarch@gmail, or visit www.facebook.com/diamondbackmarch

The title sponsor for the event is Paris Ford.
