Due to poor weather conditions in December, Leakesville Elementary School had to postpone their 5K Color Run to this Saturday, Jan 20th. As it would be so close to the date we normally have our 5K, we will reschedule ours to a later date.

We encourage you to support LES in their 5K Color Run this weekend and support all our local schools.
