Re-posting: Club to host 5K Run-Walk in Derby

Club to hold annual 5K at Derby Greenway

DERBY - The Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley will hold its annual Herbie Rollinson Memorial 5K Run-Walk Sunday at the Derby Greenway.
Sponsored by the Exchange Club of Shelton, the 5K is a community event for all Valley residents.

Registration is all online; go to and click the 5K link at the top of the page.  The event is open to children and adults. Start time is 9 a.m. for the 5K and 9:30 a.m. for walkers. Cost is $25 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under. Closing date is June 6 or upon reaching 300 participants, whichever comes first.  Register by June 6 to be guaranteed a commemorative T-shirt.  The route will begin at the Caroline Street end of the Greenway. Parking will be at Factory Street and Hallock Court (behind St. Anthony’s Book & Gift Shop, across from Calvert Safe & Lock).

Proceeds from the Herbie Rollinson 5K will support programs at our Raymond P. Lavietes Clubhouse in Shelton and Joel E. Smilow Clubhouse in Ansonia, as well as our satellite programs at Elizabeth Shelton and Perry Hill schools in Shelton and at the Seymour Recreation Center in Seymour.

For more than 65 years the Boys & Girls Club has been a positive alternative for youth. But the Club is so much more than just a place to hang out after school.  When children walk through the doors, they are exposed to a team committed to their success and programming designed to help them succeed in school and in life.
