The proceeds of the National Honors Society Queen Anne’s County High School Chapter’s Saint Patrick’s Day 5K Color Run will benefit Compass Regional Hospice.

The 5K Color Run will be held on Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Queen Anne’s County High School, 125 Ruthsburg Road in Centreville. The first group of runners will start the race at 9:00 a.m.

Registration is $15 for students and $25 for anyone 10 and older that is not a student. Participants who pre-register will receive an event t-shirt and colored powder to throw during the run. Concessions will be sold at the event.

National Honors Society President, Paige Richardson says, “This event supports a local cause that we care about and will be fun for people of all ages. While running the route, the runners will become covered head to toe in colored powder.”

“We chose to support Compass Regional Hospice because it is an organization close to home,” says Kylee Mills, National Honors Society Vice President. “Each of us knows someone whose life has been personally impacted by Compass’ hospice care or grief support services, so we wanted to give back.”
