OUR OCTOBER 21, 2017 EVENT IN FARMINGTON HAS BEEN CANCELED.
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services has cancelled its Teal Ribbon Run/Walk 5k scheduled for Saturday, October 21. The event had been rescheduled from its original date of September 9, and we had made attempts to avoid conflicting with any other community event.
After the rescheduled date was announced, Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services learned that there was a 5k being held at the same time to benefit Fit Girls of Wilton. That program is a running and reading program for girls in grades 4, 5 & 6 to encourage growth, self-esteem and confidence.
Rather than create conflict with that important event, Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services has canceled their run. Marty McIntyre, our Executive Director, said “Out of respect for Fit Girls of Wilton, the Board and staff of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services have decided to cancel our Teal Ribbon Run which was inadvertently scheduled for the same date and time. We encourage anyone who was planning on participating in our Teal Ribbon Run to sign up for the Fit Girls 5k to support this valuable organization and its work with girls.”
