Pancake breakfast, 5K set for Nov. 13

The North Haven Rotary will be quite busy Sunday, Nov. 13. The civic group will start the day with its annual pancake breakfast for local veterans. Then, Rotary members will be off to the Tessa Marie 5K Memorial Road Race.

“Both the pancake breakfast and our road race highlight what we do as Rotarians to help our community and help those in need,” Rotary chair Anita Anderson said.

The pancake breakfast will take place from 8 a.m. to noon at North Haven Middle School. Proceeds from that event will go to “Building Homes for Heroes,” a non-profit which has gifted more than 300 homes to veterans.

The road race will begin at 9 a.m. at North Haven High School, and participants can opt for the 5K or 1-mile run. A virtual run will be available to those who can’t attend on Nov. 12.

This year, the Tessa Marie Memorial Road Race is being held in honor of Ronan DeLancy, who succumbed to parechovirus at just 34 days old. Ronan’s parents, Kat and Mitch DeLancy, hope to educate the public – and health care professionals, as well – about this rare and potentially fatal virus.
