This is the 25th anniversary of the Great Pumpkin Classic, an event that attracts more than 1,000 runners, walkers, spectators and volunteers from the region, scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 18 at Trumbull High School, 72 Strobel Road, in Trumbull.
The day’s events begin with the Kids’ Fun Run, followed by a 2-mile Health Walk and the feature event, the Great Pumpkin Classic 5K Run, which has been ranked in the top 50 in New England for the past 10 years.
Trumbull Community Women (TCW) is in partnership with the Trumbull High School Scholarship Foundation, the Trumbull PTSA and the Trumbull Chamber of Commerce (TCC), an affiliate of the Bridgeport Regional Business Council.
Proceeds from the Health Walk will support TCW’s High School Scholarship Program. Proceeds from the Run support Trumbull High School Scholarship Foundation and TCC Grant Fund. The Fun Run benefits the PTSA.
For as little as $100, a business can support this community event with your name on the back of more than 750 T-shirts that will be given to all participants. If a sponsorship is not right for your business, they would appreciate the donation of gift cards to use for prizes.
