Join Filling in the Blanks on April 7, 2024, at the Sixth Annual Unite to Fight 5K. The race will take place at Waveny Park located in New Canaan, CT. This year you have the unique opportunity to get in early as a staple sponsor of this event, which will benefit your brand, and help us continue to grow that success to do even more! In Fairfield County, more than 33,000 children are not sure where their next meal will come from. Most will get breakfast and lunch from school every weekday, but many will go from Friday lunch until Monday at breakfast without a decent meal. Founded in 2013, Filling in the Blanks is an organization that fills in those weekend gaps by providing each child in its program with a bag filled with healthy, easy-to-prepare food for the weekend. When the obstacle of food insecurity is removed, children experience increased academic achievement in school and greater opportunities for success in their lives. FITB continuously serves 5,500 kids at 200 sites throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties. The organization launched five in-school pantries and a mobile pantry. The mobile pantry allows FITB to provide these families with fresh produce as well as health and wellness services.
With your race registration, you will receive the following: Unite to Fight 5K T-shirt, available for pick up at Filling in the Blanks the week of the race or on race day.* *T-shirts are based on availability if registering after March 24, 2024.
