DANBURY, Conn. -- The eighth annual Amber Room Run will take place Thursday and feature over 500 runners and walkers to benefit Ann’s Place.
The 5K course runs from the Amber Room Colonnade to Candlewood Lake and back. The course passes scenic water views, stately homes and old lake communities. The first 400 entrants receive tech T-shirts. After the race, all participants are invited to a cookout featuring an outdoor barbecue with beer, live music and more.
Doug Polistena, Amber Room general manager, said, “We are honored and proud to be working together with community businesses once again for our eighth annual 5K race and look forward to seeing everyone participate in support of Ann’s Place.”
Ann’s Place provides compassionate care to people whose lives have been touched by cancer. All support, educational and wellness programs are offered without a fee.
"We are thrilled to partner with all the runners and walkers, the Amber Room and all the generous sponsors of the Amber Room Run from the Sun 5K who have stepped forward to support our mission. This fundraising event helps us continue to provide free support services to our neighbors, colleagues and friends touched by cancer,” said David Deschenes of the Development Group at Ann’s Place.
Participants can support local cancer patients and their loved ones by collecting $100 or more to receive free race entry. If you raise at least $250, you will also receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $200 gift card to the Woodbridge Running Co.
