On April 30, 2016, WCCC is teaming up with Calais Middle High School and St. Croix Regional Technical Center to benefit student scholarships a Obstacle Course & Color Run/Walk. Developed by students, the run/walk will travel along the Johnny Shelton nature trail before arriving at the finish where stations of color will await them. Three color stations—featuring blue for participants from Calais, orange for those supporting Eastport, and purple for those representing Baileyville—will be established at three points throughout the race, with staff and students from each school hurling the color of the runner’s choosing at them. Extra color packets can be purchased for $2.00 each. A Kodak Moment photo of each runner will be taken by volunteers from WCCC at the end of the run to capture their colorful experience in the best way possible. The race is around 5 kilometers.
The color run is paid for by funds from the MELMAC grant, which contributed a total of $42,000 to the SCRTC and CMHS schools. The fee for an individual to register is $30. For a team of three to register, it’s $25 per member if they register before the day of the race. If a school is sending ten or more students, the cost lowers to $15. All registrants that wait until the day of the race will need to pay $30 to participate. A t-shirt will be given to the first 100 participates.
