Description

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! WE APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR OUR CHARITIES.  

 

Join us for the 35th Annual Bigelow Tea Community Challenge!

Last year, we were able to raise over $160,000 for donation to Bridgeport/Fairfield-based charities. We would not be able to do that without your support & the support of our sponsors! Help us beat that!

**Note: We reserve the right to transfer any in-person registrations to virtual run registrations at ANY time, should public health concerns require us to cancel our in-person run. Due to the charitable nature of this event, no refunds will be provided. **
