Libertyville High School's Color Run/Walk 2015

Thank you for the overwhelming support of Libertyville's first ever Color Run in Support of Safe Water Kenya. This event has now reached maximum capacity and will we no longer be able to accept any additional registrations.

The first annual LHS Color Run/Walk will take place on Saturday May 9th, from 12pm-2pm (check in will begin at 11). The 2.6 mile course will take runners through LHS property and Butler Lake. We want to stress that our run is more of a "fun run" ~ not necessarily an all out competition to be the fastest runner. All runners will receive sunglasses, a white t-shirt (with our color run logo) that will be doused in colored powder along the run and other goodies. Runners will also gain access to our "DJ Dance Party" hosted by 102.3 XLC on the football field after the run/walk and pizza will be donated by Jets. All the proceeds will be donated to the non-profit organization SafeWater Kenya.

We are so fortunate to live in a community that loves to give back, and therefore we want to make an even great impact around the world. Unsafe drinking water is the number one killer in Kenya, and SafeWater Kenya is a non-for-profit organization that donates water filters to schools, churches and homes in Kenya. These water filters work by using sand, gravel and rocks to filter the water into safe drinking water. They are cost-effective and practical for their setting because they do not need maintenance or electricity to run. Student Council has made it our goal to donate at least 10 water filters this year! Color Run Promo

Parent Education Presentation Video Links

Last week LHS hosted the program below and we strongly encourage you to watch it. The goal of this program was to educate parents on the following:

  • trends for teenage alcohol and drug use and how these substances affect the teenage brain

  • how the legal system addresses teenage drug and alcohol use and their parents support or tacit support of their use

Please watch these two videos and talk with other parents in your community.

 

Parents, Teens, Parties and the Law.

Click Here - Part I: Drug & Alcohol Trends and the Effects on the Teenage Brain

Maura Mooney LCSW, CADC Social Worker from Northshore University Health System talks about current drug and alcohol trends and the latest research on how substances affect the teenage brain.

Click Here - Part II: Legal Panel Reviews Landmark Deerfield Case

The Honorable Judge Christopher Stride, defense attorney Elliot Pinsel and Lake County assistant state’s attorney Ari Fisz talk about their experiences as they presided over the landmark Deerfield case where parents were held responsible for allowing alcohol at their home with tragic consequences.

 

Why should you watch these videos?

If you are the parent of a senior you should watch this because:

It is the season of prom, graduation parties and the “senior summer” before everyone heads off to college. This is a celebratory time of year where even the best of kids and parents can make decisions that have long term consequences. Seniors come back in the fall as college students who want to push the boundaries farther than ever before. Are you ready for that?

If you are the parent of a junior you should watch this because:

Alcohol and marijuana use from junior year to senior year increases significantly as seniors try to assert their independence with risk taking behavior.

If you are the parent of a freshman or a sophomore you should watch this because:

9th graders come into high school as novices- they survived their first year of high school and now they are ready to begin to assert their independence. We see a significant jump in risk taking behavior between 9th grade and 10th grade.

 

Watch these videos if you want answers to questions like:

How does marijuana or alcohol use affect the teenage brain?

What are the legal consequences of supporting teenage alcohol parties?

There is a growing national trend to legalize marijuana. How does this trend affect how we should guide our teenagers?
