Ghosts & Goblins run to benefit Carmel Education Foundation


By Raymond Mo

The 11th annual Ghosts & Goblins 5K/2K will return Oct. 26 to Carmel High School. The event benefits the Carmel Education Foundation.

“Since 1966, we have been partnering with Carmel Clay Schools to support students in the classroom,” said Barbara Danquist, the foundation’s co-executive director. “To fulfill that mission, the Ghosts & Goblins run provides the funds for us to be able to support teachers through teacher grants.”

Many participants arrive in costume to the festive event. Prizes will be awarded for best youth, best adult and best ensemble costumes.

“We’ve seen all kinds of costumes in all kinds of ways, but it’s so fun to watch,” Danquist said.

Danquist said the event is designed for people of all ages.

“We wanted something that was really open to everybody to come,” she said. “To see families and friends dressed up and enjoying themselves, that, to me, is the best. Because that’s what a community is, that you all come together for a purpose.”

The event will begin at 9 a.m. at the CHS west parking lot. Registration is available online and at the school. For more, visit
