Save The Date: The Community Fund Kicks Off its 40th Annual Darien Road Race
The 40th annual Darien Road Race is scheduled for Sunday, September 15th, 2019 at Pear Tree Point Beach. This year’s race will begin at 9:00 am for the 1.5 mile Fun Run and 9:45 am for the 5 mile race. The race will feature “The Finish Line” tent with music, games, sponsor booths, silent auction and an awards ceremony.
The Community Fund of Darien’s signature event, The Darien Road Race, once again welcomes Newport Academy as the lead sponsor for the event. The Residence at Selleck’s Woods is the Fun Run sponsor this year. The race has raised a significant amount of money over the years to benefit our neighbors with critical needs in Stamford, Norwalk and Darien. The Darien Road Race brings together families, athletes and adults young and old to celebrate the spirit of our community and supports our neighbors. All money raised from the race will benefit local nonprofits and community initiatives. The Community Fund grants target youth success, self-sufficiency, and basic needs. Community initiatives include the Thriving Youth/06820 campaign and The Human Service Planning Council (HSPC).
