Thanks to Wilton High School Athletic Director, Chris McDougal, all of the Wilton Sports Captains who helped rally the high school runners, our Youth Leagues and, of course, all of the parents who volunteered their time and resources to help fundraise and make this event happen! We could NOT have done it without you! 306 runners came out for the race and had a fantastic day!
Wilton Youth Field Hockey, in particular, came out in full force alongside our big sisters on the Varsity, JV and Freshman teams. Way to represent the sport, our community and passion for giving back. We should all be very proud of what was accomplished. Donations are still coming in, but at last count, we have passed the $5,000 mark!! Go BLUE WHITE!!!
