2010 Bishop’s 5k for Kids

For the fourth year in a row, Seabury had one of the largest teams to participate in the 2010 Bishop’s 5k for Kids in West Hartford, CT. As in the past, both employees and residents participated by walking, jogging/running the three-mile course. This year had special significance as resident Bishop Clarence Coleridge joined “Team Seabury”.

Bishop Coleridge, who has lived at Seabury for several years, founded the Bishop’s Fund for Children in 1994, while he was presiding Bishop of Connecticut. From this fund the 5k was created. It was heartwarming to not only have the Bishop represent Seabury, but also to have him see how successful the event has become over the years.

Speaking of success, Team Seabury did quite well. The months of training with the fitness and wellness specialists at Seabury paid off for several of the residents and for one of the employees. All told, Seabury took home one bronze, two silvers, and one gold award.

Seabury had 17 team members participate--10 residents and 7 employees. Seabury is proud to have had such a strong showing this year, and it was noticed by all. A thank you note from the Episcopal Diocese had this to say about our group: “Your involvement is certainly a spirit filled witness to the extraordinary “life community” of Seabury.” We couldn’t agree more, and look forward to even greater participation next year.
