Waterside School Virtual 5K Fundraiser

Waterside School is a co-educational PK-5th Grade independent school in Stamford serving children and families regardless of limitations in income or circumstance. Each year the Waterside School holds a 5K run to bring the community together and raise money for its critical educational needs.
This year, we’re doing things a little differently by asking supporters to run, bike, or walk individually or in small socially safe groups “virtually” (i.e. pick a spot, join with a few friends, relatives or on your own and run for as long or as short as you’d like).
This year’s run is once again taking place in memory of Greenwich’s Jeff Long, who was tragically killed in a bicycling accident in 2018. Jeff was my husband, a good friend to many of us and a great supporter of the Waterside School. Proceeds will benefit the Jeff Long Endowment Fund, established in 2018 in loving memory of Jeffrey Hammond Long. The proceeds will provide scholarship support for Waterside students; to further instill in them the values that Jeff stood for – selflessness, loyalty, dedication, humility and respect; and, true to Jeff himself, to remind all and always that it is cool to be nice.
About Waterside: Waterside School is a co-educational PK-5th Grade independent school in Stamford serving children and families regardless of limitations in income or circumstance. Among young Americans whose parents did not graduate from college, only five percent will graduate from college themselves… but 93% of Waterside graduates are attending or have earned admission to selective colleges and universities. The school attracts and inspires students of academic promise and families deeply invested in their children’s success.
Thank you for your support. If you have any questions please let me know.
