THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR AMAZING SPONSORS, RUNNERS, WALKERS, FUN RUNNERS AND FUNDRAISERS!  Your participation and efforts make Cove programming possible throughout the state of Connecticut.

A few items were placed in our Lost and Found - so please contact the Cove Coordinating Office at 203 634-0500 to retrieve them.

A Special Thank you to our hardworking volunteers and staff who brought it all together.  The Cove is a volunteer driven organization and we cannot do it without the many hands who help to make our events successful.

We hope to have pictures of the event up on the website shortly.

Please note - there is still time to donate - and we need your help to reach our goal. Thank you!

 

                              

Since 1997, when two parents sponsored the first event, The Cove 5K Race, Memorial Walk and Kids’ Fun Run has grown from a handful of participants to over 1,200 people. Held annually in October at Hammonasset Beach State Park, all proceeds benefit The Cove Center for Grieving Children. The majority of funds raised by the event come from sponsorships and pledges to participants and teams who create their own fundraising pages and campaigns.  CLICK HERE for a copy of the brochure.
