5K Run / Walk

To all middle school students and families: Please join Bedford and Coleytown Middle Schools at the Vicki Soto 5K on November 3, 2018! Whether you are a runner, a walker, or just want to support a great cause, we would love to have you! All proceeds from The 6th Annual Vicki Soto 5k will benefit The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund, Inc. 501c(3) charitable organization.

The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund, Inc. was established in honor of Vicki and her passion for education. To date, the fund has awarded over $100,000 in educational scholarships to students pursuing a career in the field of education. The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund has also established The Miss Soto Literacy Legacy, in partnership with the Stratford Board of Education and Stratford Library, increasing literacy in Stratford Public Schools through mentor-text learning, after school tutoring, community programming and most recently, bridging educational funding gaps. The team name is Bedford/Coleytown Middle Schools.

We hope you can join us. It's a beautiful course and there's lots of free food and drink at the end! Here's the signup link:
