Timex Group USA is proud to announce a partnership with CMAK and the Race4Chase community. The Timex IRONMAN brand and CMAK share a mutual commitment to promoting health and fitness through the support of athletics. Timex is fully aligned with the CMAK Mission to inspire community healing through family and children-focused initiatives and programs.
As a Connecticut-based company with a number of Timex employees residing in Newtown and the surrounding communities, the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary School have had a personal and dramatic effect on the Timex community. The Timex IRONMAN brand is happy to support CMAK and Race4Chase through product donations, such as watches and other training gear. Blue Seventy, a Timex Team partner, also is donating swim caps and swim goggles for the young athletes. Timex employees are encouraged to support CMAK and Race4Chase through volunteering and matching donations to the foundation.
Welcome to the 5th Annual Timex 5K Fun Run and Walk. This year’s top prize for the first place overall male and female winners will be a $100 donation to the charity of your choosing. The race will start at the entrance to the Timex Group building. The race will be timed by utilizing the state of the art MYLAPS BibTag technology. The first 150 participants to sign up will receive a tech t-shirt at the finish line. Pizza and refreshments will also be served following the event.
We are also recruiting volunteers for this event. There are many things that we need volunteers for including water station workers, course directors, food service, t-shirt and water bottle distribution, etc. There will be an exclusive raffle for volunteers only.
