What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Over the past week, hundreds of Crittenden County students have participated in Color Runs at Marion-Crittenden County Park and on their campuses. The events are designed to encourage children to be active and to promote healthy lifestyles. A Color Run is simply a gimmick, aimed at getting regular runners or joggers and novices to enjoy an untimed distance event together. Superintendent Vince Clark was among those participating in Tuesday’s high school run. He said CCHS Principal Curtis Brown developed the idea of the Color Runs last year during Health Awareness Week. Brown is an avid runner, triathlete and an ambassador of active living.
