Run to help get babies diapers on May 31

In an effort to spread diaper need awareness throughout the state, Connecticut Partnership for Children’s Valley Diaper Bank is hosting a walk and run next month.

On Saturday, May 31, CTPFC will host the Diaper Dash 5K & Family Fun Run/Walk, which will start and end at Seymour High School. This event will take place on a certified course, and all participants will be timed.

Regular registration begins Monday, April 7, at a fee of $30. Children ages 4 and younger are free, in strollers. Children who are registering can use the sponsor form on the website to help “raise” their registration fee. Participants are encouraged to form teams and register in groups of five or more (although this is not required for participation). Name your team, wear the same color hat, be creative.

The Diaper Dash 5K will also feature a Children’s Fun Run/Walk at 8:30 a.m. for all registered participants ages 12 and younger. Additionally, the event will feature “Stuff-A-Truck” with diapers, so bring a package of diapers to show your support. The first 500 Diaper Dash registrants will receive a dry-wick T-shirt. All registrants will receive a bag of goodies.

Sponsors are still needed. Contact Meghan Tarby at 203-881-1804 or for more information.
