Have you ever wanted to emerge from a fog of colors smiling in triumph after overcoming the odds and finishing a challenging task? This previous Sunday, September 11th, Midland FFA and members of the community achieved this goal during this year’s Fun Run. This annual run aims to raise money for people and organizations within the community. The money was raised through the purchase of T-shirts for the event. The proceeds were donated to the Midland Elementary therapy dog, Bruce, who was present and accounted for. This year’s theme was color. Participants were tasked with following a mile and a half course throughout a portion of Wyoming, Iowa. Along the route were several stations where colorful powder would be thrown at runners. These powders were made from corn starch and varied in color. Participants ranged from an array of 131 students and adults. Following their valiant finish, a mass of colors ensued turning many into their own art pieces. Midland FFA hosts many activities similar to this throughout the year. Bringing joy to many and making the community better. One act of kindness can ignite a world of generosity.
Thanks to all who helped with and participated in the FFA Color Run, over $1,400 was raised to help with expenses of Bruce, the elementary therapy dog! FFA Presidents Karley and Hannah presented a check to Megan in the office today!

Through this program, Bayer Fund helps protect the nonprofits and schools that keep farmers and their communities thriving. This year we are again doubling individual awards to $5,000.
