About This Activity

This is a 5K Run and 3K walk held by New Opportunities.  The New Opportunities of Greater Meriden’s (NOGM) Energy/Fuel Assistance program provides emergency energy bill assistance to lower and middle income working families, needy elderly, the disabled and others in the midst of a financial crisis, such as a job loss or a medical emergency. More specifically, this program is used for help those who have exhausted other state and federal benefits and programs and helps prevent residents from having their utility or heating service terminated due to lack of payment.  Our principal goal is to ultimately remedy people’s payment difficulties by negotiating and creating workable payment plans with the specific utility or fuel provider of those they seek to assist.

Pre-registration begins at 9:00am.

Cost of race is: $10 for walkers, $25 for runners registered before April 9th or $30 for registration on the day of.
