Volunteers are needed for the 11th annual Navigators KIC IT Races, which will be held June 23 and 24 at Cummings Beach in Stamford.
There will be a 5k, Kids Triathlon and a Family Festival on Saturday, and Olympic, Sprint and Relay Triathlons for adults on Sunday. Volunteers can choose a few hours one or both of the mornings.
The Navigators Stamford KIC IT Races raise awareness and funds for 40-year old Kids In Crisis, a free emergency shelter and 24-hour crisis counseling resource for Fairfield County children and families.
“This is a great activity for large groups and families to do together,” said Shari Shapiro, Executive Director for Kids In Crisis. “There is a reason why so many volunteers come back again and again, it’s fun and rewarding and that’s a win-win, for everyone!”
The Navigators Stamford KIC IT Race Series has quickly become one of the area’s premier multi-level sporting events and, at the same time, one of the most fun-filled, family friendly experiences around.
