Celebrating our Run Event’s 25th Anniversary!

Lord Stirling School and our partners, the Amazing Feet Running Club, are proud to announce the 25th Annual Great Swamp Devil Run, which will be held on Sunday, November 19th.

Proceeds from 5K and 15K races will benefit the students of the Lord Stirling School. The Lord Stirling School is a not-for-profit facility that provides educational programming for students with emotional and behavioral issues, most often accompanied by significant learning disabilities. For over 50 years, the Lord Stirling School has helped “at risk” youth to overcome these challenges. This fundraiser provides important funds necessary to supplement meals and supply seasonal clothing.

We are extremely grateful for the continuing support we received in 2016 from the running community, vendors and loyal friends of Lord Stirling School who sponsored the race. We hope that we can count on your support again this year.

Sincerely,
Barbara Strickarz, Executive Director/Principal
Donna Davis Board President, David Karner Board V.P., Sharon Markowitz Treasurer, Board of Trustees: Doris Kaplan, Joe Galayda, Michael Hecht.
