For the 18th year in a row, William B. Meyer, Inc. was proud to sponsor the annual Meyer Holiday 5K Walk/Run. This race is always a company favorite, attracting team members, their friends and family, and local runners. Over 200 people showed up despite the weather forecast!
The run/walk took place at The Scandinavian Club in Fairfield, CT and covered a flat 3.1 mile course. Each runner donates a brand new, unwrapped toy for a child under 16 as a part their registration in the race. All toys collected at the event go to the Fairfield Police Toy Drive, who will distribute them to children in Fairfield County. Additional proceeds from the run will be donated to the Fairfield Police Union Scholarship Fund and Operation Warm through the Fairfield Fire Department, which provides brand new winter coats to those in need.
We would like to thank Marty Schaivone from M.S. Running Productions for setting up fantastic event and course that is fun, challenging, and scenic. We would also like to thank the Scandinavian Club in Fairfield, CT for hosting the event.
