About Grayson County 4-H

The goal of 4-H is accomplished by providing educational experiences for young people to gain knowledge, develop life skills, live healthy lives, make intelligent choices and form positive attitudes/values that they will rely on throughout their lives. Grayson County youth participate in a variety of ways, through traditional, project or special interest clubs, school and community enrichment, or through after-school programming.

About the Race

The Color Me Green 4K & Fun Run is a family friendly event hosted by the Grayson County 4-H Youth Development Program. This run will benefit youth based educational efforts hosted by Grayson County 4-H. The race is designed as a 4K to promote the four pillars of 4-H, which are:
