WKCTCs Annual Paint Me RAD Fun Run in September

Runners will hit the pavement at West Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges third annual Paint Me RAD 5K Fun Run Saturday, September 12.

WKCTC radiography students are hosting both a 5K run/walk and 1K run/walk to raise money for their Kettering Registry Review and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists examination fees.

During the races, participants are doused from head to toe in vibrant colors at each kilometer. The race continues at the finish line with a gigantic color festival using more colored powder to create lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations.

Last year, more than 200 people were on the WKCTC campus to participate in the run/walk and support the colleges radiography students, who coordinated and volunteered at the event. Funds raised not only covered the examination fees for the 2014 class, but students were also able to donate money to the United Way, Kosair Childrens Hospital and the West Kentucky Radiography Alumni Scholarship.

The 5K run/walk will be held September 12 at 5:00 p.m. rain or shine. The 1K run/walk will immediately follow. Registration for the events will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Anderson Technical Building. The WKCTC campus will be closed to traffic during the event beginning at 4:30 p.m.
