Oxygen Fitness and Bankwell Join NC Color Run

Oxygen Fitness and Bankwell are thrilled to announce their partnership to sponsor the first ever New Canaan High School Color Run! Both local businesses teamed up to support this in-town event benefitting NCHS while promoting fitness and fun.

In honor of its 50th anniversary, The New Canaan High School Scholarship Foundation (NCSF), will host its first ever NC Color Run on April 29 at 9am, with a rain date of April 30. Students and adults of all ages will run/walk in either the Kids’ Color Dash, which is .8 miles for younger children, or the NC Color Run, an approximate 5k.  Both events will have a start/finish line at the high school and will feature Color Stations along the route where powdered, washable paint will be thrown in the air to create the “color run.”  There will also be food and a D.J. to celebrate at the start/finish line.

Oxygen is thrilled to participate and support New Canaan's first Color Run," said Sara Koch, along with her husband Dave and their partner, Rich Fedeli, are owners of Oxygen. "It's the perfect fit. With many high school students as members and fitness as the focus of the event, Oxygen jumped at the chance to be involved in such a fun event, raising money for the scholarship fund.”

Diane Knetzger, Bankwell’s Director of Marketing, added “As the hometown bank, we’re very excited to be a part of this important fundraiser for the New Canaan High School Scholarship Foundation.  An important part of Bankwell’s mission is to be a strong community partner, and we are very pleased to join forces with our like-minded friends at Oxygen to lend our support.”
