ORANGE COUNTY, Texas — The Southeast Texas community is running for a cause this weekend at the annual Legacy 5k Color Run & Walk.
The family-fun event helps raise funds to support grants provided by the Foundation for its "Grants-to-Educators" program.
"The color run is a great way to support health and wellness in the community, but at the same time, getting our kids involved and having some community relations," Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School Principal Ryan DuBose said.
The foundation awarded 21 grants totaling over $36,000 in 2022, according to a Color Run news release. Organizers say the total funds given since the foundation began awarding grants is over $299,000.
The grants provide funds for enrichment experiences and materials to enhance the education of students throughout LCM, according to a news release.
The Legacy 5k Color Run & Walk starts and finishes in Legacy Park near the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Consolidated Independent School District administration building.
"Our kids are loving it, so it's been great," DuBose said.
