The road is open to everyone for the Triple C School’s annual 5K Walk/Run.

The race, which will take place on Nov. 17, will also welcome people who “roll” along the path.

That means that people confined to wheelchairs can participate, as well as cyclists, skateboarders or traditional roller skaters. There will even be a special course designed specifically with the safety of young rollers in mind, and that course will be staged at Triple C School itself.

The walk/run will be open to registration all the way up to event day, and the walk will start at 4:30 p.m. with the run starting a half-hour later. The registration costs $25 for adults and $20 for students, and there will be a Christmas tree lighting at the school immediately following the event.

People walking this year will be keeping the late Theda Whittaker in their minds. Ms. Whittaker, an active parent and supporter of Triple C School, passed away in 2012 of breast cancer at the age of 36.

The annual walk/run raises money for the Ena Merren Scholarship Fund and for the STEM programs at the school, but this year, Triple C also will donate 20 percent of the registration funds to the Theda Whittaker Foundation.

Triple C School will have three Christmas trees. One will be a solar-powered tree sponsored by GreenTech Solar. The other two are called the Tree of Hope and the Tree of Love, and participants will be able to hang an ornament on either one after the walk/run has been completed.
