RUN Apart & GIVE Together
The 34th annual Celebrate! West Hartford festival should be taking place in early June 2020 featuring the award-winning arts & crafts fair, carnival rides & games, live music, a food court and business and non-profit exhibitors. A 5K foot race was added to the event 33 years ago with a dual-fold mission: raise money for families in need to access swim lessons & vacation-time camps and provide a competition for runners of all ages. Each year, the signature community event donates $8-13,000 to the Town That Cares & the Leisure Services Scholarship Funds which help our neighbors in need.
Unfortunately, in accordance with social distancing recommendations amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 festival has been canceled. However, because of financial hardships endured by many of our neighbors due to coronavirus, the need for funds is greater than ever. In lieu of the traditional festival and competitive race, we are holding a FUNd RUN.
For a $20 entry fee, registrants will receive a special commemorative T-shirt, and if you choose to run or walk any distance, we’ll post your stats with other participants’ online.
Our hope is to have 2,020 participants out running or walking the streets of West Hartford (appropriately distanced, of course!) wearing your shirts and showing your town spirit on June 5 – 8, 2020 during what would have been the Celebrate! West Hartford festival weekend.
