Proceeds from the 2019 Half Marathon will go to the Kiwanis Club of Weston Foundation, Inc. (501(c)3) for disadvantaged youth related and other needs identified by the Foundation. Proceeds from the 5K will go to the Weston Boosters for the Captains' Leadership Circle programs at Weston High School
Any donations made here will go directly to these two fine charities, as you designate.
In 2016 net proceeds from the Half-Marathon helped fund a PreK-2nd Grade Playground at the Cesar Batalla
Elementary School located on Howard Street in Bridgeport. This is the largest elementary school in the state with 100% of students receiving subsidized meal plans. The school had no playground! Imagine small children having nothing to play on, but now have a safe modern playground!
In 2017 and 2018 race years The Foundation donated to The CT Food Bank BackPack program which feeds over 3000 children that are in need of weekend food when they are away from school. BackPacks are filled with items to help supplement an otherwise potentially difficult situation at homes in Connecticut. The Boosters Club at Weston High helps to fund programs that otherwise might not be available to students.
"Captains Leadership Circle is a leadership program designed specifically for the high school athlete/leader. Our goal is to provide training so that they will be prepared to take on the role of leader at school" Mark Berkowitz, CAA, Director of Athletics, Weston High School
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR CONSIDERING ANY SIZED DONATION. WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
