WFSB Channel 3 teams up with GE 5k Petit Family Foundation Road Race

PLAINVILLE, CT (WFSB) -

Channel 3 is once again teaming up with the Petit Family Foundation.

This time it is for the GE 5K Petit Family Foundation Road Race.

The race will take place in Plainville on Sunday, July 17. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the kids’ fun run starting at 8:30 a.m. The 5k race/fitness walk will begin at 9:00 a.m.

WFSB anchor, Irene O’Connor, will serve as the emcee for the festivities.

The race, according to the Petit Family Foundation website, was created in 2008 by two high school classmates of Dr. Petit after he asked that people go out and do good things to help carry on the legacy of his wife and two daughters. As life-long runners, they decided that running, and creating this race to benefit the Petit Family Foundation, was their contribution to carrying on that legacy.
