Students to host ‘Panthers on the Run’

Marisa Foglia, Pop Culture Reporter


Blasts of color will follow runners along the Thomas Woodall Panther Trail as “Panthers on the Run” takes place Sunday.

The color run, set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., is raising funds for Care Compassion Acceptance Respect Industries.

Tickets to participate in the fundraiser cost $10, and half of the proceeds will go to the organization.

CCAR Industries, based in Charleston, helps members of the community who have disabilities and other functional limitations throughout their life.  Some of CCAR’s services include early intervention, developmental training, vocational services, client and family support, and a 24-hour residential program.
