The 3rd Annual C.A.R.R. 5k (that’s Camo America Rainbow Run) will take place Saturday, June 11th at 6pm in memory of Keith Carr.
Andrew Keith Carr was a jovial, fun-loving 21 year old from Greencastle, Indiana. He was preparing for his junior year at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, majoring in Supply Chain. While studying abroad for a summer term in Rome, Italy, Keith died in a tragic accident on June 11th, 2013. A memorial race, the C.A.R.R. 5k was created in his honor, with over 200 participants in its inaugural event in Greencastle, Indiana in June of 2014.
Among the things that made Keith a unique guy, he was particularly fond of camouflaged apparel, anything American themed, and colorful attire to match his colorful personality, hence the C(amo). A(merica). R(ainbow). Run.
Pay tribute to Keith’s unique sense of style by running, walking, trotting, or strutting 3.1 miles sporting any number of his favorite themes. Costumes/outfits are highly encouraged and combination themes may even earn awards. In the spirit of Keith, please wear something that would put a smile on his face, if you feel so inclined (and we hope you do).
A Kinetic Change, Inc. is the official benefiting charity for the 2016 race. AKC aims to increase community physical activity by creating recreation facilities, organizing fitness events, and motivating you to convert your potential energy into kinetic energy with movement.
The 2016 5K will be an evening event at Greencastle's Big Walnut Sports Park, showcasing the Andrew Keith Carr Memorial Basketball Court funded in part by previous years' C.A.R.R. 5K contributions! We look forward to sharing this exciting project with you on race day!
