Fairfield Runners Show Support For Bigelow Race

Luke and Max, who celebrated their birthdays on Saturday, ran in the one-mile kids race at the Wakeman Boys and Girls Club. Their parents, Kelly and Richard, ran in the 5k. There were 568 finishers in the 5k. There were also two other races for children and a two-mile fitness walk. In all, nearly 1,000 participated in one of the events.
The brothers, who are also hockey and soccer players, were representative of the many families who participated. They made the most of it, too, with Luke winning the one-mile race followed closely by Max. “We’ve run two 5ks with our parents,” Luke said. “This was fun.”
Kelly Laferriere said this was the first year the family participated in the race. “It’s an awesome community event,” she said. “It’s so well-organized. We’re excited to see such a large turnout for the race.” READ MORE:
