Wilton youth race to fight hunger

Members of the Wilton Hunger Awareness Club joined people of all ages and abilities at Norwalk’s Calf Pasture Beach for the Connecticut Food Bank’s first-annual Miles for Meals 5K on Sunday, June 5.

The flat 5K course featured scenic views of Calf Pasture Beach Park and the Norwalk shoreline. The event helped raise money for the Connecticut Food Bank, which provides food to adults and children in the Connecticut counties of Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham.

Wilton High School freshman Meryl Kaduboski and sophomore Nicole Case formed the Wilton Hunger Awareness Club in March to spread awareness of hunger in Connecticut. The duo rallied a group of fifth through 10th graders from Wilton to participate in the race to fight hunger:

  • Jessica Brown.

  • Nicole Case.

  • Brendan Kaduboski.

  • Dean Kaduboski.

  • Meryl Kaduboski.

  • Khushi Kapoor.

  • Lily Kepner.

  • Ian Kineon.

  • Jay Kineon.

  • Kaz Nobumoto.

  • Grace Rizzo.

  • Rachel Wilson.

The Wilton Hunger Awareness Club meets at the Wilton Library a couple Sundays a month, from 3 to 4 p.m. For more information on the club, email Meryl at atmerkad@icloud.com .
