The Jeff Armstrong Memorial Foundation hosted “Warrior Walk” Color Runs at Reidsville Elementary School (RES) and Glennville Elementary School (GES) on May 12 and 13, 2022.

This event began as a way to bring a smile to the faces of these students. The Glennville Dairy Queen provided ice cream treats to the students. 

Collins Elementary School (CES) was also given the opportunity to have a color run, but Principal Glenn Stewart opted to raise $2,000 by selling beads and bringing in loose change.

Paige Armstrong Ewing and Jessica Armstrong Curran, daughters of the late Jeff and Debbie Armstrong, are founders of the memorial foundation.

Jeff gladly gave his money to support Tattnall County students, and Debbie selflessly gave her time as an educator to teach Tattnall County students. Their brother, Jacob, willingly gave his humor as a classmate to bring laughter to fellow Tattnall County students. 

Paige and Jessica have made it their mission to carry on their loved ones’ legacies through previously holding the Rajin’ Cajun 5K and Fun Run in Glennville and now holding these color runs for the first time this year at the elementary schools. 

The S.T.R.O.N.G. Warriors fund provides a variety of school supplies, hygiene products, books, special parties, clothing, shoes, and more to elementary students in Tattnall County. 

“Our goal is to raise funds for the S.T.R.O.N.G. Warriors program that helps ‘Supplement Tattnall’s Resources to Offset the Needs of Growing’. All students have needs during the school year that help them grow and thrive.  Educators give so much of their time and love to meet those needs, and it often involves giving monetarily from their own pockets. The Jeff Armstrong Memorial Foundation needs your help to come alongside our educators and support them as they support our students,” Paige said. 

For $15, you can sponsor a student. There are approximately 2,000 students in Tattnall County’s elementary schools. The Jeff Armstrong Foundation is solely supported by many business donors and individuals throughout the community and afar.  You can donate through PayPal at this link:
