What's the Westland ColorSplash 5k? It's an amazingly fun 3.1 mile run/walk where you start the race in a simple white t-shirt and cross the finish line covered in a rainbow of non-toxic color powder sprayed onto you by enthusiastic volunteers. The fun continues after the race with a DJ, raffle prizes and lots of food to enjoy. Track your time with electronic chip timing on a fast and flat course.
This is our largest fundraiser of the year, is a tremendous community event, and raises critical funds to support important programs at Westland such as Westland Cares (our outreach program for Westland families in need), art and science enrichment, and professional development opportunities for our faculty.
Please join us and help support Westland Middle School!
