SEYMOUR - In an effort to spread diaper need awareness throughout the state, Connecticut Partnership for Children’s Valley Diaper Bank is hosting two fun events that are all about diapers.

On April 5 in conjunction with Quinnipiac University’s “Big Event,” volunteers will be posted outside the Diaper Bank’s office at 135 Main St. for the 3rd Annual “Diaper Drive-By.” 

Members of the community are invited to donate diapers and wipes at this location, by driving up and dropping off their donation. 
All donors will receive a free gift for participating!

On May 31, CTPFC will host the first  Diaper Dash 5K & Family Fun Run/Walk, which will start and end at Seymour High School. 

This event will take place on a certified course and all participants will be timed. Registration is $25 now through March 31, and $30 April 1-Race Day. Children ages 4 and under are free in strollers. 

Participants are encouraged to form teams and register in groups of five or more (although this is not required for participation). Name your team, wear the same color hat, be creative- show team spirit!

The Diaper Dash 5K will feature a Children’s Fun Run/Walk at 8:30 a.m. for all registered participants ages 12 and under.
The event also will feature “Stuff-A-Truck” with diapers, so bring a package of diapers to show your support.

The first 500 Diaper Dash registrants will receive a dry-wick T-shirt. All registrants will receive a bag of goodies.

The Diaper Dash 5K is sponsored by Stop & Shop, BIC, Naugatuck Valley Savings and Loan, WEBE108, Chatfield Rentals & Power Equipment, The Mad Hatter Boutique, Law Offices of Karen A. Fisher, ION Bank, DJ Reggie B, Tina Marie Photography, and Valley Community Foundation. At this time, we are still seeking sponsorships.
