It’s coming next month: The 26th Annual Bigelow Tea Community Challenge! We are more excited than ever as we ramp up for the 2013 road race, fitness walk and kids fun runs. The first Bigelow Tea Community Challenge, over a quarter century ago, attracted 50 participants and raised a few thousand dollars … today in our 26th year, Bigelow Tea is proud that the Challenge’s goal is over $100,000!
The event’s proceeds will support charitable organizations in our local communities including the Fairfield Senior Center, the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club and the Connecticut Food Bank. In total, the Challenge supports seventeen non-profit organizations in the greater Bridgeport, CT area that provide shelter, food, educational services, counseling and crisis management, after-school tutoring and recreational programs. Supporting our community is a major part of who we are and what we stand for at Bigelow Tea.
The Bigelow Tea Community Challenge’s 25th anniversary last year was phenomenal, attracting nearly 1,200 people. This year we’re expecting even greater participation and support. In addition to the race, walk and kids’ run, there will be food and T-shirts and plenty of spirited fun. So whether you’re a participant or a spectator, it’s truly a family affair, and a great way to help give back to the community!
We hope you make plans to join us in Southport, CT on Sunday, September 29th! For the course map and to register online, click here. Then it’s time to start training: and remember, include plenty of Bigelow Tea in your hydration regimen!
