US Day and MarcUS for Change 5K celebrate community and support at-risk youth

More than 100 volunteers and more than 1,000 visitors came out for US Day on September 18 at Mill River Park in Stamford, CT. Festivities included a multicultural parade led by Stamford Mayor David Martin, international dance performances coordinated by the Mayor’s Multicultural Council, entertainment by Pop Music Academy, and kid zone activities sponsored by Kids Helping Kids. The highlight of the day was the MarcUS for Change 5K Walk & Run, which drew 325 participants, of which Stamford High School won the Spirit Award again this year for the biggest showing. The community event was a collaboration of the Stamford Public Education Foundation and MarcUS for Change and raised nearly $65,000 to benefit Stamford Public Education Foundation’s national recognized mentoring initiatives and MarcUS for Change collaborative partnerships that support at-risk youth.
