WKCTC-2014PADUCAH, Ky. (7/21/14) — West Kentucky Community and Technical College’s second annual Paint Me RAD 5K Fun Run will hit the pavement Saturday, Sept. 13.

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 300 people were on the WKCTC campus to participate in the fun run and support the college’s radiography students. “We not only raised enough money to fund the examination fees for the 2013 class, but we also had the funds to give back to several well-deserving organizations within our community,” said David Heflin, WKCTC radiography program coordinator. “We hope to have an even bigger crowd this year to continue to build this amazing tradition.”

The 5K run/walk will be held Sept. 13 at 5 p.m., followed immediately by the 1K run/walk. 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 4:30 p.m.

Individuals can register for the event now. Preregistration is $25 before Aug. 28. Registration on event day is $35. Children 12 and under are $15 per child. All preregistered participants will receive an event t-shirt.

The registration form and event flyer are located on the WKCTC Web site.

Mail the registration form and check to David Heflin, WKCTC Radiography Program Coordinator, AHB, P.O. BOX 7380, Paducah, Ky. 42001. Checks should be made to Kelly Deasel, Treasurer, WKCTC Radiography Club.
