WHO BENEFITS: Net proceeds of the race will benefit The Hundred Club of Connecticut and Tuesday’s Children.
The Hundred Club of Connecticut is a charitable, non-profit, tax exempt organization which provides financial assistance to families of police officers, correction officers and firefighters who have died in the line of duty. The club consists of over 2400 members from all walks of life who are committed to this objective.
Tuesday’s Children works on the front lines of unimaginable tragedies, providing personalized support and a safe “landing place” to traumatized, grief-stricken children, families and communities left reeling from terrorism or traumatic loss. Tuesday’s Children’s work begins when the emergency response ends – when the true, life-altering impact of the violence sets in. Tuesday’s Children remain long after other aid organizations and the media have gone. This is our promise to those we serve. Tuesday’s Children’s proven, long-term approach to helping family members and communities recover was forged in the aftermath of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Tuesday’s Children’s programs enable our service population to, over time, heal, recover and ultimately thrive.
