Members of Kappa Kappa Gamma will raise money for George C. Clarke Elementary School’s library with a powder paint race dubbed “Kappa Kolor Run.”
Participants can walk, run or even rollerblade the 5-kilometer race. Throughout the course, women from the sorority will be throwing powder paint on those in attendance.
Kappa Kappa Gamma’s national philanthropy is Reading is Fundamental, which aims to help children discover the joy and importance of reading.
The TCU chapter carries out the motto by having book drives and mentoring students at George C. Clarke Elementary School.
This year, Catherine Crawford, philanthropy chair for Kappa Kappa Gamma, said she wanted to find a way to get the sorority more involved and start a new tradition with the elementary school.
“We really wanted to start something new and involve everyone in the community,” Crawford, a junior speech pathology major, said.
Madeline Crume, public relations chairwoman for Kappa Kappa Gamma, said, “We look forward to implementing something different and fun in the organization. We want to make this an event that people are eager to be a part of.”
The Kappa Kolor Run kicks off at 7:30 a.m. on April 26 at White Settlement Trail Head.
Those interested in participating can register at www.tcukappa.com. The cost is $30 per participant, which includes a t-shirt.
Registration closes the morning of the race.
“We are really trying to branch outside of the TCU community, so it would be awesome if everyone could come out and support the cause,” Crawford said.
