The Community Fund Kicks Off its 41st Annual Darien Road Race

The Community Fund of Darien’s 41st annual Darien Road Race is scheduled for Sunday, September 19th, 2021, at Pear Tree Point Beach.  This year’s race will begin at 9:00 am for the 1.5-mile Fun Run and 9:45 am for the 5-mile race. The race will feature “The Finish Line” tent with music, games, sponsor booths, raffle items and an awards ceremony.

The Community Fund of Darien’s signature event, The Darien Road Race, welcomes Mirador as the Presenting Sponsor for the event.  The race brings together families, athletes, and adults young and old to celebrate the spirit of our community and supports our neighbors.  The event has raised more than $1.1 million over the years to benefit our neighbors with critical needs in Stamford, Norwalk, and Darien.   All proceeds from the race will be allocated to local nonprofits and community initiatives that support youth programs and services. The Community Fund’s community investments target basic needs, community health, youth success and workforce development. Community initiatives include the Thriving Youth Task Force. The Human Service Planning Council (HSPC) and the Touch-a-Life program.
