DSC 0113Fayetteville Technical Community College Foundation is hosting the second annual Trojan Fit 5K Color Run/Walk on Saturday, April 30.

FTCC Foundation partners with donors to support Fayetteville Technical Community College by raising awareness and financial resources to provide college access for students to attain their educational and career goals.

The mission of FTCC Foundation is to foster and promote the growth, progress, and general welfare of FTCC, provide supplementary financial support to the College and its students, and advance and enrich the services provided for students, the community, alumni, faculty, and staff. FTCC Foundation manages more than 200 scholarship endowments and other funds.

The FTCC Trojan Fit 5K Color Run/Walk will be a fun event for serious runners and casual walkers. Run or walk across FTCC’s beautiful campus and explore the Camellia Trails, fountains and the Rose Garden. The optional rainbow color powder adds extra fun and happiness. There will be two routes available – a 5K run and a fun walk, appropriate for families with strollers. Proceeds from the Trojan Fit Color Run benefit the Health and Fitness Scholarship and other scholarships at FTCC.

“Now, more than ever, health and fitness are a priority for many people. The health and fitness industry is growing fast with an increased demand for trainers and industry workers,” said Joseph Davis, health and fitness instructor at FTCC and Trojan Fit committee member. “Our goal with the Health and Fitness Scholarship is to ease the financial burden of our students and help them to achieve their academic and career goals.”

Registration is limited to the first 400 participants. T-shirt and race bib pickup will take place on the Thursday and Friday before the event. Check-in on race day will begin at 8 a.m. The warm-up begins at 8:45 a.m., and the run starts at 9 a.m. After the run, participants are invited to enjoy music and food and check out health and fitness vendors.

Many volunteers are needed to manage the Color Run to staff the water and color stations and provide route guidance. This will be a safe and fun volunteer opportunity for individuals and groups.

“We are so excited to be able to host another Trojan Fit Color Run here at the FTCC campus. This event brings people together in the community and offers a great volunteer experience as well,” said Vinessa Jones, health and fitness instructor at FTCC and volunteer coordinator for the event. “Volunteer hours are a great way to be involved in the community. Students get to add experience to their college and work applications.

Whether you want to be a participant, a volunteer or simply come out to encourage those running, we hope to see you there.”

Individual registration is $35 per person. For more information and to register to run or volunteer, visit https://www.faytechcc.edu/trojan5k or call 910-678-8441.
