On Wednesday, June 19, the Hartford Track Club hosted its annual Solstice Sprint 5K. With the help of Kelly Burns Gallagher, Race Director, this race also became a fundraiser in which the Farmington Libraries was the beneficiary of the proceeds from this event.
Hundreds of runners turned out for the race and, without corporate sponsors, the Hartford Track Club raised $2,153.36 for the Farmington Library. At right, Executive Director of the Farmington Libraries, Jay Johnston, and President of the FVGLA, George Reider, accept this gift check from Kelly Burns Gallagher, Race Director of the Solstice Sprint 5K.
We are grateful to Kelly, the Hartford Track Club, and all the runners and volunteers who turned out in support of the race, and we look forward to participating in this annual event again next year as we gear up for 2014!
