Participating CountryMark fueling stations hosted Fueling Freedom events in Indiana and Ohio last month.

The company initiated the Fueling Freedom fundraiser six years ago as a way to support Indiana military families.

During the events, CountryMark-branded dealers donated to local National Guard Family Readiness Programs 50 cents for every gallon of fuel pumped and $1 for every gallon of lubricants sold.

A total of 33 CountryMark stations took part including those in Greensburg, Osgood, Liberty, Rushville and North Vernon.

According to the Greensburg Daily News, Fueling Freedom 2014 raised a total of $48,000 for troops and their families.

“Fueling Freedom is one of CountryMark’s favorite events of the year,” said CountryMark Vice President of Marketing Jon Lantz in a news release. “This is our opportunity to support our local National Guard troops. We are grateful for all they do to protect our country. It feels good to be able to help them and their families.”

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
