Leadership Academy is hosting Inaugural Color Stampede
This Saturday, the Strongsville Leadership Academy is hosting our inaugural Color Stampede. The event will take place at 8:30am and the cost to participate is $20.00 for the one-mile and $25.00 for the 5K. Here is a link to the event flyer: Leadership Academy Color Stampede.
The students have worked hard to plan this event, and all money raised will be given out in scholarships to SHS seniors starting with the class of 2017. Here is the link to register for the Color Stampede.
So if running/walking and being covered in color powder is not your thing or you are simply unavailable, here is another opportunity to support the event. On Monday, if you present this flyer at the Strongsville Chick-Fil-A, the Color Stampede event will get 15% of the sale.
