Are you up for a fun and rewarding challenge? Bigelow Tea hopes so, and is encouraging runners and walkers of all levels to sign up for our 26th annual Bigelow Tea Community Challenge, which will take place soon: Sunday, September 29th in Southport, Connecticut. While you’re tying up your laces, here’s a bit more about our charitable event.
The Bigelow Tea Community Challenge encourages families and friends to enjoy a wonderful day of outdoor exercise and community spirit! Runners can sign up for the 5K Road Race with a route passing by Southport Harbor and through a beautiful historic region. Prefer to go at your own pace? Register for a 2-mile, non-competitive Fitness Walk. Children can also join in the day’s activities with our Kids’ Fun Run, featuring a 100-yard scamper, a 1/2-mile jog and a mile-long run.
Moreover, no matter what shape you’re in, there’s a tea-rrific reason for getting involved in our challenge: Proceeds from this event will go to nonprofit organizations in Fairfield County that directly serve those in need. They include The Center for Women and Families, Connecticut Food Bank, and Operation Hope of Fairfield. Together we will make strides in supporting their missions.
Both the 5K Road Race and 2-mile Fitness Walk will start at 10 a.m. from the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club. The Kids’ Fun Run steps off at 9 a.m. at Wakeman’s Athletic Field. Complimentary food and beverages and T-shirts will be given out. Participants will also be eligible to win great prizes including free Bigelow Teas.
