Waccamaw Elementary held its first annual Rainbow Run fundraiser last Wednesday.

In an initiative to educate and encourage students to live healthy active lives, the Waccamaw Elementary PTA created a health and wellness event.

In addition to the run, they had several stations for the children throughout the day.

“In today’s technological world, we wanted to show them how much fun they can have being active, said Brantley Danahy, spring fundraiser chairperson. “It was so refreshing watching the children play classic games such as tug of war.”

She said their goal for this event, as well as this school year, was “make money, make memories!”

“Fundraising is a large part of what we do in order to offer enrichment to our teachers and students,” Danahy said. “We are equally passionate about creating lasting memories for our children.” The school’s monetary goal was set at $15,000.

At last count, they reached more than $9,000 and are still climbing.

The pledge deadline is Thursday, April 16.

“We are very pleased with the outcome of our first, Rainbow Run,” Danahy said. “I think one little guy said it best, ‘This was the best day ever!’”
