Rainbow Run Moves to Spring


Shaker Middle School PTO’s largest annual FUNdraiser - the Rainbow Run - is moving to spring this year! Shaker students, families, and community members will take to the streets for a 2-mile fun run/walk through the Shaker Middle School neighborhood. Participants will experience the thrill of bursting through clouds of colored powder, aiming to turn their bright white race t-shirts the color of the rainbow. Be sure not to miss this Shaker Raider tradition, back and better than ever! More details to come!
