Are you planning to run in Hartford in October? Or even thinking about it? A 5K? Half-Marathon? Marathon? Or do you have three friends and would like to form a relay team? If so, consider joining other educators from DEA who are running and help raise funds for CEF. The Hartford Marathon is a wonderful event with strong community support. Weather is generally seasonably cool, and there is a wonderful presence in Bushnell Park to support the runners – a food tent, a beverage tent, numerous vendors giving out freebies, and lots of other runners enjoying the day.
The Connecticut Education Foundation is a non-profit, charitable foundation that was established in 1991 to help teachers and children with extraordinary personal hardships and students planning teaching careers. You can put it out there in your school and on your social media sites – whatever you can raise, is money well spent.
Teachers from all over the state are participating, and it would be great to connect and help out from our own local here in Darien.
