Newtown Memorial Fund has offered to collect and process all donations. Proceeds from the Sandy Hook 5K will be donated to the Collaborative Recovery Fund administered by the Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation which pays the out of pocket mental health expenses for those eligible who have been most impacted by the 12-14-12 tragedy. A percent of the proceeds will go directly to the chosen nonprofit organizations of the 26 families who lost loved ones. For more information about the Newtown Memorial Fund please visit their site at Newtown Memorial Fund.

The race theme remains “Love Runs Through.” Love runs through everything being done to prepare for this event, and through every step we take to reach our goals. Our goal here is to bring you a world-class, one-of-a-kind family event filled with love. Whether you are running with us in Newtown, volunteering, fundraising, or running with us virtually…love runs through.
