All of the proceeds from this year’s event will go to benefit Larned High School student athletes through the high school weight program. “Almost every student athlete uses the weight program at the high school”, shared Athletic Director Dustin Wilson. “The importance of this program is starting to be realized by our student athletes in high school competition. We also have the highest number of student athletes progressing on to college teams then we have ever seen in the past.”
In 2014, the PVCH 4th Annual Benefit Color Fun Run/Walk successfully raised $3,979.19 which helped fund additional free weights and dumb bells for the weight room which is something that all students atheletes use throughout the year. In 2013, the PVCH Fun Run/Walk successfully raised $3,656 which helped fund a Weight & Conditioning Record Board for the LHS weight room, which designates top lifters by grade, gender and event, plus new training dumb bells.
