Last weekend more than 1200 adults and children from the New Canaan community came together to support the New Canaan High School Scholarship Fund in its first-ever NC Color Run. The event took place on Saturday, April 29, and the proceeds raised from the run helped the NCSF reach its annual fundraising goal of $100K. Young, old - and everyone in between, ran or walked, the 5K distance which led through five color stations where they were cheered and applauded while being ‘blasted’ with color in support of NCSF.
Chairs of the event agree the 2017 New Canaan Color Run was a great first step in helping the NCSF reach its goals of spreading awareness to the foundation. Plans are already in the works for next year with the hopes of making the Color Run an annual event. Proceeds from the NC Color Run go directly to the New Canaan High School Scholarship Foundation.
