US Day 2017 featuring MarcUS for Change 5K
October 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm$25
Two of Fairfield County’s non-profit organizations, the Stamford Public Education Foundation (SPEF) and MarcUS for Change, are once again collaborating to present US Day 1017 on Sunday, October 1 at Mill River Park in Stamford, CT.
The signature activity within US Day is the MarcUS for Change 5K Walk & Run, which is now in its 5th year and kicks off the day’s festivities. The event’s goal is to build awareness and funding for the programs that SPEF provides to students in Stamford Public Schools, such as its nationally recognized Mentoring Program. As part of the 5K, the MarcUS for Change Spirit Award will be presented to the school that has the highest number of event participants; it comes with a $1,000 prize for the school’s PTO! Over 1,000 event participants are expected during the day.
US Day celebrates Stamford youth and families by offering a wide variety of free, family-centered entertainment such as a multicultural parade, an obstacle course for kids, a healthy eating station, arts & crafts, music, group exercise/dancing and more. It also includes a showcase of diverse community organizations and businesses that focus on helping youth achieve healthy personal, academic, social and career-ready skills for success. It’s a great day for the whole family!
