Ion Bank Cheshire Road Race Donates Over $50,000 to Local Charities

The 2022 Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races donated over $50,000 to local charities! A recent check presentation ceremony was held at Cheshire High School where a $10,000 check was presented to a number of Cheshire High School teams, clubs, and organizations. Donations were also given to the event’s signature charities: Abilities Without Boundaries, Best Buddies CT, and the Cheshire Lions Club. These donations would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors and participants.

The 11th annual event, on April 10, attracted a crowd of over 1,500 participants.  Since the inaugural year in 2012, the Ion Bank Cheshire Road Race’s charitable focus has been on raising money and awareness for local organizations that support individuals with special needs. Volunteers from the event’s signature charities donate their time and efforts as board members, as well as providing volunteers on race weekend. The support of these volunteers continues to make the Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races an annual success!

Cheshire Half Marathon & 5K Race President, Lloyd Saberski, was happy with this year’s contributions. Saberski stated, “With the help of our sponsors and participants, we were able to continue to donate to these charities every year. The race committee is very pleased with the results of this year’s race and we look forward to increasing charitable contributions and adding additional beneficiaries in the years to come.”
