ROANOKE CITY (WSLS 10) - Crystal Spring Elementary School and Garden City Elementary are teaming up to host a color run.

The Crystal Spring/Garden City PTA Color Run will help raise money for the PTAs at both schools. Organizers say the 3.1-mile race is a fun way for families to help students and teachers.

"To raise money so that the PTA can purchase educational items for the schools and for the students," said Channing Sain, educator.

"Little things here and there they add up and that's a huge deal for teachers and no teacher should have to do that," said Krystal Huffman, PTA member. "They should have what they need without having to worry about taking it out of their own pockets."

The run happens on April 8.
