Be a champion by creating your own fundraising page and spread community awareness of our mission. Take advantage of this year’s special offer of FREE pre-race training with fitness coach, Monica Concha, at Waveny Park, dates and times vary.

The race will generate essential funding for FITB to continue supporting 7,500 children weekly at locations across Fairfield and Westchester Counties through their weekend meal program and school-based pantries.

Proceeds from the race will also support FITB’s newest initiative, The Fresh Food on the Move mobile pantry. Launched in October 2023, the pantry has served 220,000 pounds of food to thousands of local families.

With less than 1% of food donated to FITB’s program, funding from the race plays a pivotal role in addressing the growing demand for FITB’s multiple food assistance programs for families struggling with food insecurity.

In addition, we are excited to announce that Filling in the Blanks is extending a special offer to members of the Darien Chamber of Commerce. The first 20 participants from your town will receive a $5 coupon towards registration fees. This unique code is our way of supporting your community and our fundraising efforts. We hope you’ll join us! Your town code is: DCC2024.
