The Ghosts and Goblins 5K and 2K will return Oct. 22 to benefit the Carmel Education Foundation, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

The eighth annual event will start and finish at Carmel High School.

Barbara Danquist, CEF co-executive director, said the event has something for everyone.

“It is very family-friendly fun,” she said.

The foundation raises money for educational grants through community events and donations. It houses and hands out scholarships for Carmel High School seniors but does not raise money for the scholarships.

Last year, CEF raised $44,000 for educational grants.

A Packet Pick-Up Party will be held from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Oct. 21 at CHS. Greeks Pizzeria will be at the party selling food and drinks.

In addition, the Carmel High School Wellness Committee will hold a wellness fair at CHS from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Oct. 21 and 8 to 10 a.m. Oct. 22. It will include vendors, sponsors and children’s activities, such as face painting and photo opportunities.

Business interested in becoming a vendor at the CHS Wellness Fair can contact Kim TenBrink at ktenbrin@ccs.k12.in.us.

On race day, prizes will be awarded for costumes and participation from the local schools and their organizations, not for an individual’s performance in the race.
