DANBURY, Conn. -- Danbury's Athletes of Christ invites folks to take part in its family-friendly 5K cross country walk/run, on Saturday, May 21 -- and raise funds for their favorite causes.
The group invites people to create teams of walkers or runners to "hustle for sponsors to raise funds for your cause," whether it's cancer research, wounded veterans, animal rescue or simply exercising for sport.
The race will be through Tarrywile Park, beginning at 10.a.m. The Kids Race is for kindergartners through fifth grade, and it will begin at 9:30 a.m.
The entry fee is $25 per participant, and it will help fund year-round sports activities -- including summer soccer camps and winter basketball -- for at-risk kids, teens and adults that Athletes of Christ serves in Danbury's Spring Street neighborhood.
