Our Charity History and Information, our partners, sponsors and volunteer groups

Thanks to our generous sponsors, partners, the Town of Weston and our participants- over $220,000 of net proceeds have been donated to charities in our state. 

2017 and 2018 Proceeds of the Half Marathon supported the CT Food Bank Backpack programs of the Connecticut Food Bank. This charity provides six meals and two snacks in the backpacks for 3000 students on Friday afternoons. The program insures that the children will have food over the weekend! 

Proceeds from the 2019 Half Marathon went to the Kiwanis Club of Weston Foundation, Inc.  (501(c)3) to be used for disadvantaged youth related and other needs identified by the Foundation.   The Foundation also provided proceeds from the 2019 5K to the Weston Boosters for the Captain's Leadership Circle programs at Weston High School.
