WHJE is focused on promoting Ghosts and Goblins GO. Registration for the event, which the Carmel Education Foundation will host from Oct. 23 to Nov. 8, will start on Sept. 22.
Katelyn Conley, WHJE Liaison Manager and senior, is in charge of the WHJE promotion initiative for Ghosts and Goblins GO. Conley said the Carmel Education Foundation altered several aspects of the event due to COVID-19.
“Ghosts and Goblins in past years was like a 5K/2K race for the Carmel Education Foundation. But this year, it’s like completely different because of COVID, obviously,” Conley said. “(The Carmel Education Foundation) is calling it ‘Ghosts and Goblins GO’ and basically it’s going to be a two-week event.”
Conley said participants can partake in activities of their choice like going on a walk with family over the course of two weeks while practicing physical distancing. Participants will have a virtual “bib” to honor a CCS Super Hero (a teacher or a staff member) where they will put photos of themselves doing activities.
Additionally, Conley said WHJE has a crucial role in the promotion of Ghosts and Goblins GO.
“We’re doing a scavenger hunt for Ghosts and Goblins (GO), we’re hosting contests, we’re making a bunch of promos and PSAs, (and) we’re doing podcasts about it,” he said.
WHJE radio advisor Dominic James said in addition to the fun, the fund-raiser component of Ghosts and Goblins GO is something that profoundly impacts participants.
“I think there is always that sense that you’re helping to raise money for a good cause as well” James said. “The money for (Ghosts and Goblins GO) is to raise funds for the Carmel Education Foundation.”
