Addison Trail Student Council officers junior Anjali Acosta, junior Jackelyn Macedo Hernandez and junior Pablo Sosa said the goal of the event is to bring everyone together for a good cause.

“We noticed there’s a lack of connection between the generations, and we wanted to host an event that would get the community involved and help bring us all together,” they said. “Our goal is to have this become a memorable event that continues for years to come.”

They added that coordinating the Color Run has been a two-month process and has involved working with the Village of Addison regarding logistics, as well as local businesses for sponsorships. They said Student Council also helps with the school’s Homecoming, Winter Fest Dance and Breakfast with Santa, and the group plans to do even more in the future.

“We definitely recommend getting involved with Student Council,” they said. “It’s a great way to represent the student body and to share your voice with staff and administrators.”
