Color Run Success
Color Run
Several staff and individuals from the Scioto County Board of DD and STAR participated in the first annual Color Run, sponsored by Portsmouth West River Days Candidate Kelsey Davis. The event was part of the community service project for the River Days candidates. Davis chose Special Olympics and Vern Riffe Cheerleaders to donate the proceeds of the event. Nearly $1000 was raised. The event has now been adopted by the Friends of Scioto DD and will be an annual fundraiser for the organization. Participants Alex Sudbrook and Portsmouth Daily Times Reporter Joe Pratt are shown in their colorful, end-of-event attire.
